Cancer Training Program

Our training program renewed for another five years!

We are extremely pleased to announce that our grant has been renewed by NIH. This training program in the Biochemistry of Growth Regulation and Oncogenesis, funded under the single longest-running NCI training grant at UC San Diego, will provide funding to support four predoctoral and six postdoctoral scholars through 2019, when it will have completed 34 years of vital training for cancer investigators. During its past years of operation, this program has supported the advanced training of more than 200 predoctoral and 100 postdoctoral trainees.

Many thanks go out to the administrators and supporters of this program: Dr. Scott Lippman  (Director of Moores Cancer Center); Dr. Suresh Subramani (Executive Vice-Chancellor of UCSD), Dr. David Brenner (Vice-Chancellor  of UCSD Health Sciences), Web Cavenee (Director of the Ludwig Institute of Cancer Research,  San Diego Branch), and our 32 Participating Faculty Mentors.
