Lung Physiology and Biomedical Engineering (Interdisciplinary Training)


Sieck, Gary C. Ph.D.


The Training Program in Lung Physiology and Biomedical Engineering trains the next generation of biomedical researchers in lung physiology and disease.

This multidisciplinary research training is for pre- and post-doctoral students in the area of respiratory physiology and biomedical engineering.

The primary objectives of the program are to train three groups for biomedical research careers in lung physiology and disease:

  1. Pre-doctoral Ph.D. (or M.D.-Ph.D.) students with undergraduate backgrounds in engineering, mathematics or physics
  2. Postdoctoral Ph.D. scientists with backgrounds in engineering, mathematics, physics or basic biomedical sciences
  3. Postdoctoral M.D. or M.D.-Ph.D. clinician-scientists
