T32 Training Grant in Cancer Biology

The T32 Training Grant in Cancer Biology (TGCB) at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is a training program funded by the National Cancer Institute that provides a two-year vigorous curriculum to cultivate next generation of cancer scientists. The program provides trainees with education and training opportunities that will allow them to assimilate multiple cutting-edge methodologies and technologies. The program has highly directed foci in signaling networks in cancers cells, tumor microenvironment, metastasis and interactions between cancer cells and how cells. . The breadth of diverse expertise of participating faculty represents a well-balanced training program to provide trainees of various interests in basic science, translational and clinical research and our program mentors have outstanding track records in both funding and publication in high-impact journals.

The program has funding for three predoctoral (1 supported by the NIH and 2 supported by funds from MD Anderson) and three postdoctoral trainees. 

Eligibility for predoctoral trainees:

Call for applications – Fall 2018

We expect to send out the next call for applications for predoctoral trainees with application guidelines in the fall of 2018.

For graduating students interested in a postdoctoral slot for the training program, or any other questions please contact the program director, Dr. Mien-Chie Hung, or the program administrator, Dr. Stephanie Sellers.
