Project Details


This proposal, in response to RFA:CA-91-32, describes a Clinical and
Molecular Cancer Research Training (CMCRT) Program at Memorial
Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. The object of this training program is to
provide clinical oncology trainees with both laboratory and clinical
investigation skills that will enable them to develop full-time academic
careers targeted upon moving new findings in molecular and cell biology,
as well as immunology and pharmacology, from the research laboratory into
clinical trials. The training program will be directed by the chairmen
of the five clinical departments with patient-care responsibilities at
Memorial Hospital: Medicine, Surgery, Radiation Oncology, Pediatrics, and
Neurology. Twenty mentors (or mentor pairs) have been selected to direct
the research activities of the trainees. The curriculum includes
laboratory research, writing and executing clinical trials, and
participation in educational seminars and lectures. The initial number
of trainees is six per year, and this is projected to increase to 12 per
year (allowing for six in the first year of the program and six in the
second year of the program). Trainees may remain in the program for up
to four years, supported by other sources of funds, until they are ready
to initiate independent academic research programs. Memorial
Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center provides an outstanding interdisciplinary
clinical research environment in which to pursue the goals of this
training program.
