Postdoctoral Fellow Cancer Programs
The program aims to produce cancer researchers who are uniquely trained in the field of systems biology in order to identify and elucidate critical cellular and molecular networks underlying cancer risk, initiation and progression; thereby promoting an alternative viewpoint to the traditional reductionist approach which has typically focused on characterizing single molecular aberrations.
The goal of the educational program is to train a new generation of scientists to interact across traditional technical boundaries and prepare them for leadership positions in bioengineering, biomedical sciences, and health care.
This program will provide the opportunity for talented scientists to learn the intricacies of merging nanotechnology with the biological and medical sciences, specifically for the use in cancer, in addition to becoming leaders for the rapidly growing field of cancer nanotechnology.
The goals of SMIS are to train postdoctoral fellows through a diverse group of over 40 basic science and clinical faculty mentors representing 8 program areas, incorporating formal courses in molecular imaging, molecular pharmacology, cancer biology, cancer immunology, virology, and gene therapy, with a clinical component including hematology/oncology rounds.
The Stanford Postgraduate Training Grant in Epithelial Biology is designed to support post-doctoral fellows undertaking research with faculty members in the Stanford Program in Epithelial Biology
The Training Program in Hematopoietic Transplantation supports postdoctoral trainees to pursue their career goal of establishing themselves as independent medical research scientists.
This Stanford Training Program supports comprehensive didactic training in nonmalignant hematology and stem cell biology, and laboratory research training in the research specialty of the faculty sponsor.
Faculty and guest speakers provide updates and expert perspectives on diverse aspects of cancer research.
