NHLBI T32: Integrated Biostatistical Training Program for CVD Research

The Department of Statistics at North Carolina State University (NCSU), the Department of Biotatistics and Bioinformatics at Duke University, and the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) at Duke University administer this integrated program for predoctoral training in biostatistics to prepare trainees for careers in biomedical research, with a focus on cardiovascular disease (CVD) research. The goal of the program is to prepare graduate students studying for a Ph.D. in Statistics at NCSU or a Ph.D. in Biostatistics at Duke to excel as both biostatistical methodologists and biostatistical collaborators, preparing them to conduct state-of-the-art biostatistical research relevant to important problems in CVD and other health sciences research. Trainees receive training in foundations of and new developments in biostatistical theory and methodology in their home departments and work with leading researchers at DCRI on cutting-edge issues in CVD science to which they apply their statistical training.

The training program is funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and includes a stipend and tuition and fees. Please see below and the links above for more detail.
