UCB/CHORI Tumor Biology T32 Training Program

The overall goal of our training program in the Regulatory Biology of Cancer and Growth Control is to train excellent graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in a wide range of basic (molecular, cellular, genetic, physiological) and clinical experimental research strategies that provides the critical scientific depth needed teach our trainees to creatively, independently and rigorously explore “cutting edge” issues in the rapidly evolving field of cancer biology.  The cancer biology training activities will be directed by nine faculty mentors in the Dept. of Molecular and Cell biology at the University of California at Berkeley (UC Berkeley) associated with the Cancer Research Laboratory (CRL) organized research unit at UC Berkeley, and three faculty mentors from the Center for Cancer Research at the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI), which represents a unique training collaboration that facilitates interactions between two complementary scientific cultures and enriches the scientific environments and cancer biology at both UC Berkeley and CHORI.  The mechanisms to accomplish our objectives are the strong scientific environments and available research resources at UC Berkeley and CHORI, an academic curriculum that augments Departmental requirements with issues in cancer biology, and the training program sponsored CRL Distinguished Lectureships, Tumor Biology seminar series, the CRL Translational Seminar series, the annual Postdoctoral Research Symposium in Basic and Translational Oncology, and our proposed new Distinguished Lectureships in Translational Oncology, which we feel will foster the kind of innovation that will lead to novel findings and which can contribute to cancer prevention and cure.
