EXCEED THE SPACE PROVIDED. The broad, long-term objective of this training grant renewal application is to provide a group of M.D. and Ph.D. postdoctoral fellows with the research training to permit them to become independent investigators in the field of lipids, atherosclerosis and nutrition. The training program will utilize investigators at the University of Washington who are performing funded research, both basic and clinical, in these related areas as preceptors. Use will also be made of many basic scientists with whom these core faculty collaborate. The program will provide the trainees with research experience in both basic and clinical investigation in preparation for independent research careers. In keeping with trends in research, there will be a strong focus on molecular and cell biology. A series of lectures and seminars related to the topics of lipids, atherosclerosis and nutrition, as well as in scientific methods and ethics, will complement the research training. The areas of lipids, atherosclerosis and nutrition have obvious health-relatedness. Complications of atherosclerosis remain a major cause of morbidity and mortality in both males and females of all ethnic groups in the United States. A better understanding of the way that lipids and lipoproteins alter the atherogenic process and the role of nutrition in these events have important health implications.
