The Centre facilitates the training of young scientists and clinicians and provides a unique opportunity to work at the interface between basic and clinical cancer research.
Postgraduate Education and Training
The education and training programme aims to develop knowledge and skills in the research arena, that enhance professionalism and facilitate staff and student development.
The Centre has a comprehensive programme which includes weekly seminars with intramural and extramural speakers, annual events such as the Postdoctoral Research Symposium and the International Scientific Symposium.
Summer Research Programme
As part of our strategy to encourage the best bioscience undergraduate students to progress to a career in scientific research, we have a summer research programme which provides a number of scholarships for undergraduates to work in research laboratories during the summer.
Several recent initiatives, which have contributed to the international dimension of our flourishing research student programme, include joint studentships with NCI-designated Cancer Centres (including NCI and Georgetown University) and with Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Toronto.
