Calabresi Clinical Oncology Training Program
UMGCC’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 will focus 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 University of Maryland, Baltimore, provides a large number of experienced
mentors engaged in a broad range of disciplines, along with
the strength of its existing K30 Clinical Research Curriculum for Scholars’
didactic training. The Program receives robust institutional support from UMGCC,
as well as University of Maryland, Baltimore.
Each Calabresi Scholar will have three mentors: a clinical mentor, a basic science mentor, and a biostatistical mentor. Although we cannot guarantee that any particular faculty member will be available to serve as a mentor, we encourage potential Scholars to explore the broad range of research interests pursued by UMGCC faculty.
Clinical Scholars must have recently completed postgraduate training in medical, radiation, surgical, or gynecologic oncology or oncology nursing and must be ready for a first faculty appointment.
The Paul Calabresi Clinical Oncology Training Program (Training Program) provides
a wonderful opportunity for Calabresi Scholars to jump start their careers as
oncology clinical researchers with protected time for research and training.
The Paul Calabresi Clinical Oncology Training Program (Training Program) will
provide 75% salary support for junior faculty as well as associated fringe benefits.
