Surgical Oncology NCI Funded Research Fellowship

About the Program

The Research Training in Surgical Oncology program is designed to train independent investigators who are interested in surgical oncology research in the areas of cancer biology, molecular therapeutics, tumor immunology, biomedical engineering, health disparities, population health and clinical trial design/implementation.

Funded by a T32 grant award from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the program is led by program director, Nipun Merchant, M.D., Vice Chair of Surgical Oncology Services and Chief of the Division of Surgical Oncology. The Research Training Program in Surgical Oncology addresses a critical need to help meet the future demands for training the next generation of surgical oncologists to pursue academic careers, become physician-scientists or clinician investigators, and translate research discoveries to clinical practice. 

The program supports two trainees per year and fellowships are two years in duration.
