The program trains promising new investigators in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease disparities, with interdisciplinary training that crosses the T0-T4 spectrum from basic science to community translation. While focusing on a selected area of this spectrum (e.g., basic science), trainees obtain hands-on or classroom experience with the other facets of translation in real-world clinical or community settings.
