The Baylor College of Medicine Research Training Program in Cardiovascular Surgery is designed to prepare M.D. surgical residents and Ph.D. post-doctoral fellows for a research career in cardiovascular surgery. Funded by a T32 grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), our program is led by principal investigator/program director Todd K. Rosengart, M.D., chair of the Department of Surgery, and program co-directors, Scott A. LeMaire, M.D., vice chair for research, and Barbara W. Trautner, M.D., Ph.D., director of clinical research. The program supports two (M.D. or Ph.D.) trainees per year, for two years each.
Postdoctoral M.D. and Ph.D. trainees accepted into the program will engage in a mentored research project which will be complemented by a set of core program activities, team science training, and responsible conduct of research training. All T32 faculty mentors have active laboratories, have been successful in securing extramural funding, and have a strong commitment to training the next generation of cardiovascular surgeon-scientists and Ph.D. investigators.
