These areas will provide comprehensive training in basic and clinical translational research. The training program will require a commitment of two years of research funded by the T32 grant for PhD's applying to the program. The program faculty represents a closely-knit, interactive, multidisciplinary faculty from the Division of Nephrology and Departments of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Microbilogy and Immunology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Geriatrics, and Physicology and Biophysicis at UAMS. Trainees are expected to complete at least one major research project, present their work at national meetings, and apply for NIH funding (K08 award) at the end of the two years of research training. Fellows completing this program will be competitive candidates for academic research careers. Interested candidates must be US citizens or permanent residents.
