***** Openings are available for July 1st start dates in 2012 to 2015 *****
Open to PGY 2-5 year (NIH level I - IV) surgical residents. Opportunities exist to conduct studies on cellular priming and inflammation after hemorrhagic shock and resuscitation , and the mechanistic link to organ failure. Specific emphasis on delineating the inflammatory signaling cascade and other mechanisms of hyper inflammation and mitigating lung injury using clinical, animal, cellular and molecular details of inflammatory signaling. Trainees pursue their basic science research using animal, tissue culture, and molecular models as well as prospective clinical trials. Additionally, we are investigating post-injury coagulopathy, with both basic science and clinical investigations using proteomics and state-of-the-art viscoelastic hemostatic assays.
Trainee(s) will report directly to the T32 mentors Ernest E. Moore, MD and Anirban Banerjee, PhD in the Department of Surgery. We seek individuals who want to conduct laboratory research, publish, and grow personally as investigators in preparation for academic leadership. The program emphasizes personal responsibility, teamwork, multi-tasking, and communication skills. Many of our trainees (> 60%) remain investigators and are prominent in surgical investigation from trauma transfusion, cancer, cardiology and general surgery.
We strongly encourage qualified individuals with disabilities to apply for the training program. We believe that such individuals can make significant and paradigm changing contributions to our research objectives. The University of Colorado Denver is committed to all sections of the American with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and has experience in accommodating individuals with specific needs on a case by case basis.
