Cancer Cell Biology Training Program Overview
The Cancer Cell Biology Training Program (CCBTP) is an National Cancer Institute-funded T32 predoctoral training program. The premise of the CCBTP is that doctoral students graduated from this and other institutions are well trained in the paradigms of molecular and cellular biology, but rarely receive significant training in the pathobiology and treatment of cancer. With an increasing emphasis on translational, disease-oriented research, the need to address this deficiency in graduate student training has become of greater urgency. Thus, the broad goal of this program is to provide comprehensive PhD training in cancer biology to allow students to effectively contribute to the new wave of translational research.
