Cancer Research Training and Education Coordination

Educational training programs offer opportunities for early career researchers as they begin and progress in their cancer-related careers. Our clinically-oriented and translational educational activities expose basic scientists to core concepts in cancer medicine and train oncologists and related clinicians in the tenets of genomic sciences relevant to their clinical practice.

The JAX Cancer Research Training & Education Coordination Core (CRTEC) ensures trainees and junior faculty have access to education and mentoring opportunities that will support them in developing the skills necessary to become leaders in cancer research.

We create opportunities for dialog between basic research, translational and clinical scientists and provide basic researchers with the translational and clinical perspective necessary to identify and tackle the areas of greatest need for fundamental, mechanistic research.
