The program is jointly funded by the Frankel Cardiovascular Center (F-CVC), Esperance Family Foundation, and American Heart Association (AHA) to host 30 fellowship positions within the program. Each fellow will be notified of their funding source at orientation.
Each fellow will be matched to a laboratory led by a F-CVC faculty member and participate in nationally recognized research in areas such as atherosclerosis, genetic cardiomyopathies, blood clotting disorders, cardiac arrhythmias, vascular biology, and heart failure.
Fellows are expected to work in their mentor’s lab, attend weekly scientific seminar series, participate in organized social events, and at the end of the program, present their summer research findings at the End of Summer Symposium where fellows give an oral PowerPoint presentation to faculty, staff and peers.
The stipend will be paid via bi-weekly paychecks (direct deposit available) at a rate of $15 per hour (pre-tax) for ten weeks of full-time work (40 hours per week).
