A fellow with her research board

As a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, we maintain an interactive, multidisciplinary research program focused on the rapid transfer of knowledge from the laboratory to the clinic.

Our fellows will participate in basic translational and/or clinical research, designing a research proposal under the guidance of a research mentor as well as a mentoring committee made up of three faculty selected by the individual fellow.

Fellows will meet with their committee at pre-specified intervals to ensure continued progress.

Each fellow is expected to finish training with at least one first-authored abstracted presented at a national meeting or peer-reviewed publication.

Fellows will complete a week-long research workshop supported by the Research Career Development Office at the University of Maryland, entitled "Introduction to Clinical and Translational Research". Trainees also have access to workshops which review grant writing, how to publish research, and identifying funding sources.
