The National Cancer Institute-funded T32 Fellowship, Interdisciplinary Training in Cancer Epidemiology, is a collaboration between the University at Buffalo and the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. The program has been in existence for 15 years. Former trainees have been extremely successful, going on to postdoctoral fellowships and then to research positions at Academic Health Centers, Cancer Centers, the NCI, NIOSH, CDC and FDA. Fellows receive in depth training in epidemiology, biostatistics and cancer biology as well as other disciplines. There are numerous opportunities for development of an interdisciplinary research program, leveraging the resources at both institutions.
As part of a relatively small program, fellows receive intensive one-on-one mentoring from faculty in epidemiology and at least one other discipline. In addition, the program offers seminars related to epidemiology, cancer prevention, work in progress meetings, and training related to career development.
Fellows receive support for up to 3 years; support includes a stipend, tuition, fees, research travel, and other research related expenditures.
