Cancer Nanotechnology Training Centers (CNTCs)
CNTCs are designed to establish innovative research education programs supporting the development of a multi-disciplinary nanotechnology workforce capable of pursuing cancer research. CNTCs target graduate students and post-doctoral researchers with backgrounds in medicine, biology, and other health sciences as well as in the physical sciences, chemistry, and engineering. The program of multi-disciplinary research education in cancer nanotechnology is primarily focused on mentored laboratory-based training through participation in dedicated training research projects. This program is administered by the NCI Center for Cancer Training.
Johns Hopkins University — Predoctoral and Postdoctoral Training Program in Nanotechnology for Cancer Research
Integrated predoctoral and postdoctoral training program in nanotechnology for cancer research that is positioned at the interface of medicine and technology.
University of Texas — Interdisciplinary Translational Pre/Postdoctoral Program in Cancer Nanotechnology
Bridging the gap between new discoveries coming from academic labs and their translation into clinic with a multidisciplinary training program.
Northwestern University — Cancer Nanotechnology Training Program
MD- and PhD-level investigators trained in the principles and tools of nanotechnology, cancer biology, and clinical oncology with the eventual goal of applying these skills to translational research.
Stanford University — Cancer Translational Nanotechnology Training Program
Providing post-doctoral trainees with education and cross-disciplinary training to develop interdisciplinary researchers in cancer nanotechnology translation.
University of California, San Diego — Cancer Research in Nanotechnology (CRIN)
Provides trainees with a balanced combination comprehensive cancer biology, engineering, and entrepreneurship didactic training, including cancer researcher, clinical/translational cancer faculty, and practical skills in small business environments.
University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill — Carolina Cancer Nanotechnology Training Program
Contributing to the growth of the cancer nanotechnology workforce by providing postdoctoral training and research experiences.
