Future Positions in the Division of Prevention
and Population Sciences
The Division of Prevention and Population Sciences is going
through an exciting period of expansion. The Division supports,
conducts, and initiates population-, community-, and clinic-based
research on the causes, prevention, and clinical care of
cardiovascular diseases. Research includes a broad array
of population-based epidemiologic studies; clinical trials
of interventions to prevent disease; studies of genetic,
behavioral, socio-cultural, and environmental influences
on disease risk and outcomes; and studies of the application
of prevention and treatment strategies to determine how
best to improve the quality of clinical care and public
health. Examples of programs we support include the Framingham
Heart Study, the Hispanic Community Health Study, the Women’s
Health Initiative, the Action to Control Cardiovascular
Risk in Diabetes (ACCORD) trial, and the HMO-based nationwide
Cardiovascular Research Network (CVRN). Among our research
growth areas are physical activity, behavior-oriented clinical
trials, health services research, and vascular risk prevention
beginning in childhood.
