NCI Named to List of "Best Places to Work"
The largest NCI intramural training programs are supported by the Center for Cancer Research (CCR). CCR is committed to supporting and training the next generation of cancer researchers, helping them launch careers in basic, translational, and clinical cancer research. CCR clinical fellows train at the NIH Clinical Center, the nation's largest hospital devoted to the pursuit of clinical research. Joint programs in CCR and the NIH Clinical Center provide clinical fellows with the opportunity to treat patients while conducting both clinical and basic research. In addition, NCI's Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) offers fellowships in epidemiology that provide training in conducting population and multidisciplinary research to discover the genetic and environmental determinants of cancer and new approaches to cancer prevention. Many other smaller intramural programs are supported by NCI's Divisions and Offices.
