Bugher Foundation First Training Fellowship
Bugher Foundation's First Training Fellowship Program.
The primary goal of the Bugher Training Fellowship is to train a new generation of researchers in the field of stroke, with the tools to further our understanding of stroke genetics and pathophysiology, in addition to promoting translation of basic science advances into concrete clinical advances that reduce the incidence of stroke.
The American Heart Association introduced in 1999 the AHA-Bugher Foundation Awards for the Investigation of Stroke and in 2005 the Bugher Award resulted from a generous commitment from the Bugher Foundation, which is interested in stimulating investigation on cerebral blood vessels and stroke.
It is our goal to provide fellows with a common curriculum in clinical research methodology, epidemiology, statistics, and genetic approaches to the study of stroke mechanisms and prevention. We also want to provide you with exposure to areas complementary to your background whether in the clinical or basic sciences, with the goal of producing translational investigators fully conversant in all type of stroke research.
Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, the Harvard School of Public Health, and the Broad Institute at Harvard and MIT and affiliated hospitals will provide you with educational foundations based on your specific need. It is our anticipation that all Fellows, except those with an MPH or PhD in epidemiology will take the HPSH Summer Program in Clinical Effectiveness.
