The Interdisciplinary Training in Cardiovascular Research T32 faculty mentors must meet the criteria set by the National Institute of Health to be recognized as an established investigator capable of providing administrative and scientific leadership. The NIH defines established investigators as those who "perform independent research in an academic, industry, or government setting with independent (often peer-reviewed) research funding. They have a demonstrated high level of productivity and a distinguished record of original contributions as a recognized leader in their research field, and serve as mentors and role models in their scientific expertise areas." Faculty interested in providing training with the CVR T32 should contact the PIs to determine eligibility.
The University of Arizona subsidizes approximately 40 core and collaborative facilities which are available for trainees to use for research support.
The Interdisciplinary Training in Cardiovascular Research is divided into three research themes. Faculty mentors are listed in each area with contact information and a brief description of their research.
