NIH/NHLBI Career Development Program in Omics of Lung Diseases (K12)

Request Research Help

The long-term objectives of this program are to develop multidisciplinary career development programs that will equip new MD and PhD (or equivalent) investigators with the knowledge and skills to apply pan-omics and integrated approaches to elucidating genomic and molecular bases of lung disease, including heterogeneity, key regulatory networks, and relevant disease biomarkers, with the goal of advancing understanding of lung disease pathobiology and lung disease personalized medicine applications. The required expertise should include bioinformatics, experience in utilizing data from large cohorts and electronic medical records, techniques of integrative genomics and systems analysis, along with expertise, or at least familiarity, with clinical research and pulmonary medicine. Given the multidisciplinary nature of the research training, proposing multiple PD(s)/PI(s) is encouraged.
