The objective of our Training Program is to provide an integrated nurturing environment for the trainee who will grow as an independent investigator. He/she will move comfortably between the basic lab bench and clinical arena. This intellectual and technical flexibility allows trainees completing our program to bring new insights into basic research, to develop productive basic research programs, and to test the clinical significance of hypotheses developed in the basic science laboratory.
The laboratory has an active research group focused on clinical trials with disease markers for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, oxidative stress, pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacogenetics. The laboratory uses advanced mass spectrometric methods.
