This notice describes changes in New Investigator policies stemming from the NIH Enhancing Peer Review Initiative. Under this new policy, the NIH intends to support New Investigators at success rates comparable to those for established investigators submitting new applications.
The Cancer Training Branch manages the Institute's research training, career development and education programs for U.S. citizens, providing guidance to the extramural biomedical research community and administration of awards. This assures continued development of well-trained investigators in the basic, clinical, population and behavioral sciences, who are prepared to address problems in cancer biology, causation, prevention and control, detection and diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. Continued progress in cancer research depends on uninterrupted entry of new, well-trained, highly motivated scientists.
NIH-supported training opportunities at universities and other institutions across the country (extramural), including training grants, fellowships, and loan repayment programs. Also, research and training opportunities at the NIH (intramural), including fellowships and summer internships.
Opportunities for bioengineering and bioimaging training from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB).
Training Opportunities in Bioengineering and Bioinformatics at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) & the National Science Foundation (NSF) - by Career Level
E-mail newsletters covering funding opportunities and other issues related to imaging research.
Fellowship, intern, and postdoctoral opportunities at NCI.
Postdoctoral fellowships, clinical residencies, programs for recent college graduates, and summer internships for high school, college, and graduate students, as well as medical and dental students - in basic cancer, AIDS, and clinical and translational research.
The Imaging Sciences Training Program emphasizes research in all aspects of clinical and basic imaging sciences and image processing. Fellows have access to state-of-the-art imaging and computer facilities found in the NIH Clinical Center (the NIH's hospital and clinic), the In Vivo NMR Research Center, and basic science laboratories and tissue culture facilities.
Research and training opportunities at the NIH (intramural) ranging from summer programs for high school students through employment for postdoctoral scientists.
