Training to Improve Cardiovascular Therapies

MUSC logo


 Cardio Training Grant

The objective of this program is to train promising new scientists with backgrounds in the physical, chemical and biomedical sciences, in mechanisms of cardiovascular diseases and the experimental strategies and technologies necessary for the development of novel therapeutics targeting these diseases.

Future decades will see rapid advances in our understanding of the structure and function of molecules involved in cardiovascular diseases, and hopefully the successful application of these insights to development of novel treatments and prevention of cardiovascular diseases.

Such advances will require well-trained, energetic and productive scientists with the ability to understand and manipulate molecular events within a physiological context. These are the type of individuals that we aim to develop through the integrated predoctoral and postdoctoral components of this training program.
