The Medical College of Wisconsin’s Cardiovascular Center has been awarded a five-year, $1.6 million grant from the National Institutes of Health National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to help train cardiovascular scientists.

The grant will support post-doctoral trainees with an MD, PhD, Doctor of Pharmacy or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine for up to three years of training in an effort to launch their research careers.

The goal of the project is to prepare the next generation of cardiovascular scientists, including underrepresented minorities, according to a MCW release. Read the full story here.
