Oncogenesis & Developmental Biology

The Training Program in Oncogenesis & Developmental Biology is an NCI-funded T32 training grant that supports two predoctoral students and four postdoctoral fellows per year to receive state-of-the-art training focused on normal and neoplastic development and differentiation. Trainees have the opportunity to investigate the role of developmentally regulated genes in the etiology of human cancer. In addition to laboratory training, trainees and preceptors engage in career development sessions, multidisciplinary training in cutting-edge technologies, an annual boot camp on cancer and development and a yearly translational research mini-symposium. The preceptors of this program are well established investigators with NIH-funded research programs.

Postdoctoral applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents with no more than three years of postdoctoral experience.

Predoctoral applicants must apply to DGP, IBiS or NUIN graduate programs.

Applicants should send their CV, verification of citizenship status, statement of research interests, selection of three potential mentors from program faculty and one letter of reference to Robin Leikin, PhD. She can be reached at 312-908-9229.
