Cardiovascular Health Related Research Scholars

The PRIDE Summer Institute is a research career advancing opportunity at SUNY Downstate Medical Center that is funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). This mentored research program will address the difficulties experienced by junior investigators (with a terminal degree, e.g., MD, PhD, EdD) in establishing independent research programs and negotiating through the academic ranks.

The goals of the PRIDE Summer Institute include:

  • Enabling participants to develop a balanced perspective in determining research priorities
  • Improving their capacity to address and eliminate health disparities
  • Developing the skills and networking necessary to achieve independent research careers in heart, lung, and blood disorders.
