Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

The Multi-Disciplinary Research Training Program in Myocardial Biology at Stanford (TIMBS) is funded by the National Institutes of Health to bring together post-doctoral fellows and faculty from six complementary areas - genetics and genomics, cellular signaling, molecular imaging, physiology and phenotyping, cardiac development and regeneration and outcomes research and population science. Although many possible divisions exist in the spectrum of cardiovascular investigators, one of the most discrete is the division between those researchers interested in blood vessels and those primarily interested in the biology of the heart muscle itself. Myocardial biologists at Stanford are found in diverse departments and divisions within the wider Stanford community and this provides a natural vehicle for multidisciplinary training.

The Program will train 6 post-doctoral fellows from MD and PhD backgrounds together over a one to three year period beginning July 1 every year, combining myocardial biology research with a structured educational program. There are 28 faculty mentors from the School of Medicine, including Cardiovascular Medicine, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Pediatric Cardiology, Biology, Chemical & Systems Biology, Molecular & Cellular Physiology, Bioengineering, Biochemistry, and Primary Care and Outcomes Research.
