The Stanford Cancer Institute’s (SCI) Comprehensive Cancer Research Training Program (CCRTP) is a two-and-a-half-day program that invites learners to participate in current cancer research lectures and discussions. The program’s curriculum consists of plenary sessions followed by half-day sessions on two scientific themes, each featuring three to four presentations. Speakers include nationally and internationally renowned Stanford faculty who will expound on current topics of basic, translational, and clinical cancer research.

SCI invites learners from all levels, including undergraduate, graduate, post-doctoral students (residents, clinical fellows, research fellows), and junior faculty, to attend. Individuals from the School of Medicine, School of Engineering, and the School of Humanities and Sciences are highly encouraged to participate. External students are welcome and highly encouraged to participate as well. Other opportunities during CCRTP include poster sessions where learners can showcase research work through a poster session and networking with faculty, colleagues, and other peers. At the end of the program, we ask for feedback through a post-event survey to improve the curation of topics further and improve your experience.
