Cancer Prevention and Control Postdoctoral Training Fellowship

Train to Become an Independent Investigator

The R25T Cancer Prevention and Control Fellowship Program has had a long history of training qualified candidates in a diverse experiential environments within The University of Arizona Cancer Prevention and Control Program (CPC) at The University of Arizona Cancer Center. The program was funded by the National Cancer Institute from 1998-2015. With the termination of the R25 CPC training program at NCI, the program has initiated a T32 Fellowship to ensure we continue to develop strong, independent investigators to advance cancer prevention and control in the future.

The UACC T32 application, will be directed by David S. Alberts, MD and Robin Harris PhD. This Fellowship application is focused in Cancer Prevention and Control as well as Health Disparities given the rich catchment area for training in these two vital areas of cancer research. Fellows will be selected from a range of primary disciplines relevant to cancer prevention and control (CPC), and training will be grounded in a multidisciplinary approach through formal coursework, seminar series, workshops, conferences, interactions with mentors and activities focused on the fellow’s primary research project. The training program includes clear scientific and academic goals, constructive scientific guidance from top-level mentors, and support for presentation and publication of results. Each fellow will be a mentoring team and mentoring plan in place to ensure future success in academic research.
