Vascular Basic Research Lab

Vascular Basic Research Lab

The Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery has basic, translational, and clinical research programs. Within each of these programs there are opportunities for graduate student research, post-doctoral fellowships, resident research fellowships, and research experiences for medical students and undergraduate students. Our Division has routinely participated in the  University of Virginia Medical Student Summer Research Program (MSSRP). In addition, there are Research Faculty within the Department of Surgery and within the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery such that opportunities exist for positions of this type for appropriately qualified individuals.

In addition to opportunities in the more basic and translational research programs, there are a number of on-going clinical research projects involving data collection, analysis and interpretation, and manuscript preparation. Many of these use existing IRB-approved clinical databases unique to specific UVA faculty research interests, as well as the use of larger government and insurance-based databases. These clinical research opportunities are often a perfect fit for undergraduate and medical students interested in an initial experience in clinical research.
