Cancer Center Mentor Network

The University of Cincinnati Cancer Center supports the active participation of trainees across a broad spectrum of educational backgrounds. CRTEC places a major emphasis on the integration of training and education activities across basic, population, and clinical cancer research. In addition, the mentor network prioritizes diversity, equity, and inclusion by working to engage underrepresented populations in education and training activities.

The Cancer Center Mentor Network is committed to unlocking the scientific potential of learners at all levels of the educational continuum. The Cancer Center invests to train mentors as they are critical to developing the next generation of successful independent investigators.

If you are interested in pursuing graduate-level education, the UC College of Medicine offers many programs relevant to future careers in cancer research.

Post-Doc Programs
  • Experimental Therapeutics Fellowships: The University of Cincinnati Cancer Center's Experimental Therapeutics program is offering a one-year fellowship program with a focus on clinical research. The fellowship program is designed for individuals who desire focused training and experience in clinical oncology research, with a particular emphasis on early-phase clinical trials and precision oncology. Candidates should have a medical degree, be board certified, and have completed a three-year Internal Medicine Residency. Training in a formal Hematology/Oncology fellowship program is advantageous but not required.
