Newborn Medicine | Fellowships | Research Training
Fellows have two years of protected research time with some night call responsibilities. Our fellows routinely present their research at national and international meetings, publish in high impact journals and obtain extramural funding for their research. Fellows may select research mentors from throughout Washington University School of Medicine in basic science, translational or clinical research with advice and guidance from Drs. Vachharajani, Cole, and Warner. Accomplished research mentors are available across multiple research domains are available thanks to Washington University School of Medicine’s achievements as one of the top research institutions in the country with 407.2 million dollars in 2016 in National Institutes of Health funding.
