Our program offers training in clinical and/or basic science research. This mentored rotation requires advanced planning to ensure that the proposed research can be carried out and completed in the allotted amount of time. At least 6 months of time will be given for research during the 36 months of training, with up to 18 months allowed for fellows with strong interest in a research career. In order to complete training, completion of an academic project is required. Our biweekly research meeting is a forum where basic science and clinical research faculty and staff as well as fellows meet to discuss ongoing projects and brainstorm ideas for future projects. Dedicated statisticians are available to assist in the design and analysis of investigator initiated research. Each year one trainee from the institution is awarded a prize for best research project of the year.
On average, we have more than 120 adult and pediatric hematology-oncology clinical trials originating from national and regional cancer cooperative groups, pharmaceutical industry, as well as investigators from our own institution.
Basic science research is conducted at Kabara Cancer Research Laboratory under the leadership of Dr. Paraic Kenny. http://kennylab.org/.
