Dr. François Abboud has received a 5-year renewal of the T-32 training grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute that funds the Abboud Cardiovascular Institutional Research Fellowship. The Research Fellowship is a competitively awarded interdisciplinary postdoctoral training opportunity providing mentorship, guidance, and support to physicians and basic research scientists with a focus in cardiovascular medicine. Graduates of this fellowship are renowned investigators and leaders in their respective fields at the University of Iowa and around the world. This program has been continuously funded by the NHLBI since 1975 and will continue through 2021, an unprecedented 46 year span. Comments from ACRC Director, Dr. Barry London and Co-Director Dr. Peter Gruber on this remarkable achievement include, “The continued funding of this T-32 is a testimony to generations of researchers trained by Dr. Abboud!”.
