NIH T32 Research Training Grant

T32 Fellowship 


The NIH-supported Impact of Biological, Clinical, and Social Determinants on Trauma and Trauma Outcomes Fellowship trains two physicians for two years of basic science investigation. The grant provides a stipend to pay for training under the supervision of principal investigators located at the Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine and/or Boston Medical Center. Initially awarded in 2010, the grant was renewed in 2022. 

This T32 fellowship has fostered the career development of more than 20 physician scientists. Their research interests have been diverse, spanning studies on the pulmonary response to traumatic injury, investigation of sepsis phenotypes and mechanisms in septic shock, injury prevention pertaining to firearm violence, and mechanisms of worsening vascular disease in chronic kidney disease patients.


Candidates must be eligible to be paid by a training grant sponsored by the NIH, including being a U.S. citizen or holding a green card. Residents of training programs should have completed at least two years of training by the time they begin the fellowship. Successful applicants must be committed to an academic career.


All applicants will be asked to submit the following:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Results of standardized test scores (e.g., USMLE)
  • Personal statement (one page maximum) with specifics about the desire to develop into a clinician-scientist.
  • Two letters of recommendation:
    • Letter of support from Department Chair or Program Director indicating that the applicant will be able to work full time in the lab for two years without clinical responsibilities
    • Additional letter of recommendation
