Fellows work with mentors to develop ideal portfolios of research and scholarly activities. Clinical Investigator Track: Fellows work with mentors on clinical trial design and develop skills in all aspects of clinical protocol development and the care of the patient on clinical trials. Fellows are mentored to apply for ASCO/AACR and ASH Workshops in clinical and translational research. Extensive experience in Phase-I trials, biomarkers, and translational research is offered. Active participation in NCI Cooperative Group Clinical Trials (SWOG) is strongly encouraged. Translational Research & Basic Science Track: Fellows are paired with mentors in laboratory-based research with funding from training grants and fellows are expected to develop research and manuscript/grant-writing skills. In addition to these tracks, fellows may choose to work on healthcare disparities research, prevention research, and other programs of the CTRC, an NCI-designated cancer center.
