Cancer Biology Research Opportunities

There are opportunities to participate in many varied aspects of cancer research, including:

  • Cancer genetics
  • Molecular and cell biology
  • Cell signaling
  • Pharmacology/toxicology
  • Cancer immunology
  • Tumor microenvironment
  • Metastasis
  • Stem cells
  • Gene therapy
  • Therapy resistance
  • Molecular targeting
  • Drug development
  • Radiation biology
  • Cancer diagnostics
  • Epidemiology

Research projects are planned and developed based on the postdoctoral fellows’ areas of interests and faculty expertise. Postdoctoral fellows are matched with research faculty who (1) take an active role in helping the fellows to plan and achieve their research goals; (2) facilitate opportunities for the fellows to participate in national and international research meetings; (3) assist the fellows in seeking opportunities to present papers or to interview for faculty positions; and (4) support the fellows in attending professional development activities, such as career development seminars, research symposia and grant-writing workshops.
