The Cancer Epigenetics Training Program Program provides postdoctoral fellows with in-depth training in multiple areas of cancer epigenetics, spanning from biochemistry, molecular and computational biology, to in vivo modeling, translational research, and social epigenomics. The program provides trainees with a platform through which they can develop successful careers as scientists, physicians, scientific administrators, and entrepreneurs that will identify novel agents and devises to treat cancer.

Federally funded by the NIH-NCI, Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (T32) program, the Cancer Epigenetics program is led by Co-Directors, Maria Figueroa, M.D., Associate Professor, Department of Human Genetics; Co-Leader, Cancer Epigenetics Research Program and Lluis Morey, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Human Genetics. By bringing together an accomplished team, the goal is to train the future leaders in the field, who are poised to take new challenges in fighting against cancer through epigenetic studies.

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