Interagency Oncology Task Force Fellowship
The Interagency Oncology Task Force Fellowship (IOTF) program trains scientists in research and research-related regulatory review, policies, and regulations to develop a skill set that bridges the two disparate processes. Fellows learn to build awareness of regulatory requirements into the early stages of the medical product development process and will develop strategies to improve planning throughout research and regulatory review.
The fellowship is offered as a partnership of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the U.S. Department Health and Human Services (HHS).
*Selection of fellows will be dependent upon the availability of funds. Note eligibility requirement for all IOTF tracks: U.S. citizenship or permanent residents, who have resided in the US for a total of three of the past five years.
IOTF applications opened on May 1st, 2022. The program will start on September 1st, 2022.
IOTF Program Tracks
- Track 1: Oncology Product Research and Review for M.D. Oncology Fellows
This fellowship will train physicians in aspects of clinical trials methodology and analysis, epidemiology, clinical aspects of medical product development, and regulation to facilitate the movement of drugs, biologics, and devices from the basic bench science to commercialization.
- Track 2: Oncology Product Research and Review for B.C. Oncologists
This fellowship will train physicians in aspects of drug, biologic, or device development and related issues and standards to facilitate movement from basic bench science to commercialization.
- Track 3: Oncology Product Research and Review for Postdoctoral Research Fellows
This fellowship will train individuals with postdoctoral research experience in aspects of research and review of the medical product development process to facilitate the movement of drugs, biologics, and devices from the bench to the bedside.
- Track 4: Cancer Prevention Product Research and Review
This fellowship will train individuals in aspects of the cancer prevention drug, biologic, or device development processes, including their application to study populations, to facilitate the movement of novel approaches from the bench to the community.
