Within the Department of Oncological Sciences, we provide education on many areas of cancer research. Specifically, the cancer biology program, which focuses on the biochemical mechanisms of the disease.
We hold a weekly seminar series featuring nationally and internationally recognized investigators discussing a variety of cancer-related topics ranging from fundamental mechanisms to translational and clinical research. In addition to expanding horizons and adding to attendees’ knowledge base, this forum gives trainees, staff, and faculty the opportunity to interact and develop collaborations with outstanding scientists from multiple disciplines and institutions.
Cancer Biology Training Program
Our Cancer Biology Training Program is funded by an NCI T32 training grant for postdocs and students led by Stuart Aaronson, MD, and James Manfredi, PhD. The training program is designed to train molecular and cellular biologists to advance research on the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. We work closely with the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences to provide education and mentoring and with the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs on research collaboration, funding support, and career development.
