Research Fellowship in Immunohematology
The Department of Laboratory Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine offers structured post-doctoral basic research training in the broad field of Immunohematology. This NIH-funded NRSA program is designed to provide the basic science and translational research skills needed for individuals to become successful academic clinician-scientists in this area.
The heart of the 2-3 year program revolves around investigative work in a Yale faculty mentor's laboratory. Faculty are drawn from a variety of basic science and clinical departments at Yale including Laboratory Medicine, Pathology, Immunobiology, Genetics, Cell Biology, Internal Medicine, Bioengineering and Pharmacology.
In addition to direct investigative work, trainees receive formal didactic instruction in relevant basic sciences and methodologies and participate in a special seminar series providing interaction with investigators in this field from across the country.
For individuals with an MD degree, the program also has a track which includes obtaining a PhD degree during the training, either in Investigative Medicine through the Yale Investigative Medicine Program or in Biomedical Engineering.
The broad areas of investigation covered include: hematopoiesis, immunopathogenesis of disease, the inflammation-coagulation interface, and host-pathogen interactions.
