PRIDE Summer Institute in Cardiovascular Genetic Epidemiology

Faculty & Administrators

Description:
The primary objective of the Summer Institute in Genetic Epidemiology is to provide all-expense-paid training and mentoring in genetic epidemiology and risk factors to junior-level faculty and scientists that are under-represented in the biomedical sciences and/or with a disability, so that they can competently and effectively develop independent research programs on cutting edge Heart, Lung, Blood, and Sleep (HLBS) disorders. This initiative to bring under-represented faculty and scientists into research is important because of the major public health burden of these diseases, especially in minority populations.

This Summer Institute program was designed to provide a working knowledge and appreciation for genetic epidemiology and bioinformatics methods and to integrate these skills with the Mentee’s substantive research interests in CVD and HLBS problems. It will (1) require participation in 3-week summer institutes during each of two summers, (2) attending a mid-year meeting at Washington University (January) and a meeting among all sites & NHLBI (April/May), and (3) involve long-term networking with a Mentor to advance one's own research career.

Toward this mission, our objectives include:

1. To provide fundamental training in genetic epidemiology and bioinformatics, with an emphasis on hands-on learning in addition to pure didactic course work.

2. To advise and mentor the mentees during the following year in terms of career development for developing independent research plans dealing with HLBS disorders.

3. To help the mentees apply for independent career development research grants by taking full advantage of the extraordinary resources of the participating institutions and mentors.

One of the great strengths of this all-expense-paid program is that the vast resources and the rich research and training environment in the labs of the mentors will be available to all mentees. We believe that, by exposing our mentees to the full breadth and depth of the ongoing research programs and resources at the participating institutions, we are ensuring that our mentees will be fully integrated with the biomedical sciences in a very natural manner.

Featured Program!

The Fisk-Vanderbilt Masters-to-Ph.D. Bridge Program

The Fisk-Vanderbilt Master’s-to-PhD Bridge Program focuses on increasing the number of underrepresented minorities in astronomy, biology, chemistry, materials science and physics. Students work towards the Master’s degree at Fisk with the intention to enter a PhD program at Vanderbilt or elsewhere, with access to instructional and research opportunities at both institutions. Tuition, stipend, and medical insurance are provided. Click here to learn more and apply!
