WUSTL Transdisciplinary Postdoctoral Training Program in Obesity and Cardiovascular Disease
Washington University School of Medicine in Saint Louis
The goals of the training program are to:
1) train talented transdisciplinary postdoctoral trainees to become independent scientists in obesity and cardiovascular disease (CVD) capable of working within and leading transdisciplinary research teams;
2) provide trainees with primary mentoring from highly-qualified, senior obesity/CVD researchers and augment the trainees’ experiences with training from senior co-mentors with renowned translational research programs that can extend and inform the traditional scope of obesity/CVD research; and
3) provide training in the ethical and socially responsible conduct of obesity and CVD research across the lifespan including with vulnerable populations (e.g., children, mental health populations).
