A 2 to 3-year Cardiovascular Endocrine Research Fellowship is available at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and is designed to prepare bench scientists and clinical/translational scientists for successful research careers in Endocrinology, Genetics, Cardiology, and/or Nephrology. The program investigates genetic and hormonal mechanisms associated with cardiovascular and renal disease in hypertension, obesity and diabetes. Basic scientists receive training in cell, organ and animal physiology, and molecular biology. Clinical scientists receive training in human physiology, pathophysiology, genetics and clinical trials. Genes currently under investigation include: caveolin 1, angiotensinogen, LSD1, striatin, mTORC, ERAP1, beta 2 adrenergic receptor and estrogen receptor beta. Areas of interest include aldosterone and mineralocorticoid receptor mediated cardiorenal and vascular damage, and cardiometabolic diseases associated with complications of pregnancy.
