ISH Funding for Mentors and Organisations to Train Research Scholars in Hypertension: DEADLINE 27 JULY 2016
There is a critical need to establish and support high quality training programs within low/middle income countries that can enhance the early careers of researchers in the basic science, clinical and public health areas of hypertension. To help meet this need the Society is offering awards to mentors in these countries who have the expertise and resources to offer fellowship training in hypertension disciplines to young investigators.
We invite you to read an interview with Namita Hattangady. Namita hopes to continue towards a career in translational research in adrenal and cardiovascular pathologies, with the aim of developing a deeper understanding of electrophysiology which aid in the study of the cellular biophysics in physiological and pathological conditions, as well as in the bioinformatic and statistical analyses of next generation sequencing data.
