Available Training Opportunities
The Cancer Biology T32 Training Program at the University of Maryland is a prestigious program designed to train predoctoral students and postdoctoral fellows in fundamental mechanisms of cancer biology at the molecular, cellular and organism levels. The program takes advantage of the multidisciplinary and highly interactive research environment within the University of Maryland Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center and University of Maryland School of Medicine on the University of Maryland Baltimore campus to provide outstanding training in critical areas of basic and translational cancer research. A major goal of this multi-disciplinary program is to provide trainees with a stimulating academic environment that inspires interdisciplinary cancer research, including cutting-edge technologies enabling discoveries that will lead to next-generation diagnostics, specific therapeutics and effective preventives. Trainees will gain an appreciation for productive bidirectional translation between lab and clinic by participating in research and didactic sessions with interactive teams of basic, translational and clinical researchers. Support for the program has been provided from a training grant from the NIH National Cancer Institute.
