Calabresi Clinical Oncology Training Program

UMGCCC’s Paul Calabresi Clinical Oncology Training Program, funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), supports tomorrow’s leaders in clinical oncology research through the appointment of Paul Calabresi Scholars (Scholars) following a competitive application process. The award is named for the late Paul Calabresi, M.D., a founder of modern clinical oncology research, who was devoted to mentoring of fellows and junior faculty.

The Program focuses primarily on recruitment of scholars with research interests in three thematic areas:

  • Multimodality Treatment Strategies for Cancer;
  • Drug Discovery and Development; and
  • Underserved Populations & Cancer Treatment Disparities.

The Paul Calabresi Clinical Oncology Training Program is currently not accepting applications. Please check back for upcoming opportunities.
