Postdoctoral Fellow Cancer Programs

Cancer Systems Biology Scholars Program

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.

Postdoctoral Training in the Radiation Sciences

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.

Cancer-Translational Nanotechnology Training Program (Cancer-TNT)

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.

Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS)

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.

Postgraduate Training Program in Epithelial Biology

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

Training Program in Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation

The Training Program in Hematopoietic Transplantation supports postdoctoral trainees to pursue their career goal of establishing themselves as independent medical research scientists.

Training in Pediatric Nonmalignant Hematology and Stem Cell Biology

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.

Events/ Seminars

Faculty and guest speakers provide updates and expert perspectives on diverse aspects of cancer research.

Funding Opportunities

Expert tutelage and financial support helps trainees develop the independence, critical skills and sense of inquiry that will allow them to meet the challenges and changes that lie ahead. See our Fellowship Awardees.

SCI Spotlight

The SCI Spotlight connects with Stanford cancer researchers and trainees to provide insight into the work we are doing to diagnose, treat, and prevent cancer.  


Diversity in all forms enhances Stanford Medicine's core missions — education, research and health care.
