HCI's groundbreaking cancer research occurs in many areas - from the lab bench to the clinic to our community and beyond. Scientists pursuing these bold research ideas are engaged in a lifetime of learning that begins with training as a young student and continues throughout their career. As much as anything, training the next generation of cancer researchers is critical to reducing the heavy burden of a cancer diagnosis.

There are a wide variety of undergraduate, pre- and post-doctoral training opportunities available in the laboratories of Huntsman Cancer Institute members. These training opportunities encompass basic science discovery, clinical investigation and population-based studies. Our goals are to understand cancer from its beginnings, to use this knowledge to create new and better treatments, to implement these strategies to improve outcomes and to learn from our efforts across populations to continually minimize the burdens of cancer.

Trainees flourish in a collaborative and collegial, multidisciplinary research environment under the guidance of experienced mentors.
