The Hollings Cancer Center seeks applications for the NCI-funded Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Training Grant’s (T32) Integrative Training in Oncogenic Signaling (ITOS) Program. The goals of the program are to provide five postdoctoral trainees with proactive mentoring, oversight, and research training in cutting-edge methodology; to develop useful academic and essential career development skills; to foster collaborative, interdisciplinary interactions with faculty and other trainees; and to provide exposure to current cancer research discoveries and how these are being translated into novel approaches to prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. The ITOS Program, led by an outstanding cadre of program Faculty, offers distinct experiences, and opportunities only afforded to the selected ITOS Fellows.
The Program in Immunology Research and Entrepreneurship (PIRE) was developed to train postdoctoral fellows in immunology with an emphasis on translation, biomedical innovation and entrepreneurship. The program seeks to address the need to empower our future immunology research workforce with the competencies necessary to commercialize scientific discoveries. Disease-related themes that are central to this program are innate immune mechanisms, immunity to infection, alloimmunity (organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant), autoimmunity, and cancer immunology.
