Program Description:

The major goal of the CB doctoral program is to provide outstanding training opportunities for future leaders in the different aspects of cancer research in preparation for a diversity of career paths in research, teaching, and medicine from academia to industry. Specific goals include training future independent cancer researchers in various aspects of cancer biology, including basic and translational cancer research. Using appropriate model systems, from in vitro cell culture to modeling in animals, the Cancer Biology program trains students in the study of the various processes associated with cancer biogenesis. At the completion of their training students will be able to design and conduct hypothesis-driven research using state-of-the-art techniques. Students will be able to critically interpret the scientific literature and use effective written and oral communication to present their scientific discoveries.
