The Bioengineering Cardiovascular Training Grant (BCTG) is currently accepting applications for appointments starting in June and September 2016. Application deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, April 1, 2016. Additional information and instructions on how to apply are available at the BCTG website (opens in new window).

The BCTG program is directed by Dr. Michael Regnier and a Steering Committee that selects trainees and monitors their training progress. Training support is usually provided for 2 years. Cardiovascular based research projects that involve collaboration between at least two research laboratories will be preferentially considered.

The BCTG provides an opportunity for graduate students interested in cardiovascular science and engineering to train under the guidance of excellent mentors. This training will simultaneously enrich the trainee’s research and strengthen the future of cardiovascular-related research and technology development in the United States.

Graduate students will be selected for support from departments that participate in the program at the University of Washington, after trainees have been accepted into the laboratory of a BCTG faculty member and have been supported by the faculty mentor for at least 1 quarter. Applications will also be accepted for students in laboratories of faculty members not currently in the BCTG program, providing these faculty apply to become BCTG faculty.
