Research Training in Immunohematology & Transfusion Medicine
The Department of Laboratory Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine offers 2-3 years of structured post-doctoral research training in the broad field of Immunohematology to MDs, MD/PhDs, and PhDs interested in long term investigative careers in academia or elsewhere. This NIH-funded NRSA (T32) program is designed to provide the basic science, translational, and clinical research skills needed for individuals to become successful clinician-scientists and scientists.
The major areas of focus are:
- Stem Cells/Hematopoiesis
- Transfusion Medicine
- Host-Pathogen Interactions
- Vascular Biology/Transplantation
- Biomedical Engineering.
Trainees must meet the criteria for support on an NIH NRSA: a citizen or a non-citizen national of the United States or have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence at the time of appointment.
Applications are accepted throughout the year. For applications and inquiries, please follow the instructions under “Apply”.
