|Cardiovascular Epidemiology Research|
Academic and research training in Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) epidemiology has been offered at the Department of Epidemiology since 1956. The faculty (and a large number of distinguished scientists and public health practitioners trained by this program) have played an active role in the understanding and control of cardiovascular disease witnessed in the last two decades. Current advances in biologic sciences and technology can be exported from the laboratory to the field and allow population-based study of clinical and pre-clinical diseases, and their social, genetic, and contextual determinants. The UNC CVD Training Program, supported in part by an NIH training grant, is actively involved in research endeavors in these areas, and provides both course work and hands-on research experience. This program emphasizes interdisciplinary training and promotes the career development of its trainees.
