This basic-translational research fellowship track is for outstanding trainee candidates in adult and pediatric pulmonary medicine. It offers an extra year in any of the four fellowships (Allergy & Immunology, Critical Care Medicine, Pulmonary & Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine) in the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, Critical Care and Sleep (PACCS) Medicine that would be focused on an intensive research project — and would culminate in a grant submission. Research experience is desired but not a prerequisite.
At the University of Arizona, training the next generation of physician scientists is our highest priority. For those fellows interested in cutting-edge research, our Division, the Asthma & Airway Disease Research Center – A2DRC (formerly the Arizona Respiratory Center), and the BIO5 Institute have partnered to also offer a dedicated four-year research fellowship for highly qualified individuals. This position is made available on an every-other-year cycle and is often unfilled due to the rigorous selection process and the nature of the research training experience.
The A2DRC is internationally known for pioneering work defining the genetic origins of asthma since it's creation in 1971. A2DRC projects span all spheres of research: clinical trials through our NIH-funded Asthma Clinical Research Center (ACRC), translational research utilizing our unique cohorts, and technology-driven bench research. Our recent success engineering humanized mice will revolutionize the way we study human disease.
If selected, trainees entering the third year are expected to apply for career development awards and will be in an excellent position to become thought leaders in pulmonary research both on campus and on the national stage.
How To Apply
There are two ways to be selected for this fellowship.
Applicants to any of the four fellowships available in the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine and participating in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) may be selected as a candidate for this track based upon their research interests and qualifications.
In addition, for those fellows currently in any of the four PACCS fellowships, this track would offer an extra year focused on an intensive research project — and culminating in a grant submission.
