Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology
Predoctoral and Postdoctoral (T32) Training Program
The Department of Molecular Pharmacology & Physiology is excited to announce the launch of our T32 program Training in Research on Vascular Inflammation and Injury.
This is the first T32 Instructional Training Grant awarded to the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).
This T32 will support the training of predoctoral fellows and postdoctoral fellows in basic and translational research, focusing on organ pathophysiology related to vascular inflammation, immunity, and injury.
Inflammation is a common mechanism underlying many diseases and organ pathologies, including hypertension, atherosclerosis, arrhythmia, stroke, Alzheimer’s Disease and other neurodegenerative diseases, traumatic brain injury, sepsis and stroke. Fellows will receive comprehensive and integrated training in genetic, molecular, physiological, and pharmacological studies of organ systems heavily involved in inflammatory injury, namely the brain, heart, lung, kidney, gut and placenta.
Training is provided by a diverse group of well-funded faculty from multiple departments, including Molecular Pharmacology & Physiology, Pathology & Cellular Biology, Neurosurgery, Surgery, Internal Medicine, OB/Gyn and Medical Engineering.
