The Predoctoral Fellowships help students initiate careers in cardiovascular and stroke research by providing research assistance and training to support studies related to cardiovascular function, disease, and stroke, or to related clinical, basic science, bioengineering or biotechnology, and public health problems.

Ms. Amgalan, a third-year student in the PhD Program, is mentored by Dr. Richard Kitsis in the study entitled "BAX as a small molecule therapeutic target for myocardial infarction" in support of developing a novel drug to limit heart damage during myocardial infarction (heart attack). Dr. Kitsis and co-investigator Dr. Evripidis Gavathiotis also received the three-year AHA Collaborative Sciences Award to support this project.
