The Cancer Biology discipline is a vibrant community of successful researchers and educators with expertise across the spectrum of bench research to bedside application. The Cancer Biology discipline provides students and fellows rigorous training in fundamentals of cancer biology and translational aspects of cancer research including drug development, prevention and treatment. Our National Cancer Institute (NCI) designed cancer center provides students the opportunity to closely interact with physician scientists. We have Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas and NCI T32 training grants. In addition, our students successfully compete in NCI pre-doctoral fellowships; publish in high impact journals and pursue successful careers at top-tier academic institutes and industries.
"I chose the Cancer Biology discipline because of the interdisciplinary and collaborative environment which fosters innovative translational approaches to improve cancer patient outcomes and survivorship."
