The aim of the Interdisciplinary Training in Cancer Research training program is to train young scientists to design and conduct research on significant problems in cancer by combining information and approaches from different scientific disciplines, including basic cellular and molecular biology, epidemiology, clinical trials and studies, and behavioral-social sciences. The program seeks to produce researchers who can excel in the increasingly complex and specialized environments required for future cancer research. Trainee research projects typically transcend the traditional boundaries separating the molecular and cellular, clinical, epidemiologic and social cancer sciences.
Required programmatic activities include but are not limited to monthly trainee meetings, an annual colloquium, and lunch with a program-hosted Current Biology Seminar Series speaker.
The program supports 10 trainees each year: 8 trainees appointed to an NCI training grant and 2 trainees supported directly by Fred Hutch.
Pre- and post-doctoral trainees interested in pursuing interdisciplinary research are encouraged to apply for positions in the program during application season. Only one application is required for consideration for both funding sources. Each funding source is described below.
We are not currently accepting applications. Please check back in late summer 2018.
