The mission of the Center for Lung Biology is to provide state of the art scientific development in lung biology that advances the understanding of human health and disease. One important element of fellowship training is development of research expertise. The focus on translational research in lung biology and pathobiology in the Center provides outstanding opportunities for clinical fellows to obtain research training.
The Center for Lung Biology is committed to assisting career development for clinical investigators. This begins with in-depth research training and continues through support of fellows to develop extramurally funded research programs.
Several extramural sources are available to support career development for clinical fellows who are developing their research expertise and who are committed to academic medicine.
