We are pleased to announce the Call for Applications for September 2015 funding
(see link below).


The aim of this program is to train cancer researchers to:

  1. Forge linkages that enhance their ability to generate and investigate innovative new research ideas;
  2. Transfer laboratory discovery to clinical and community practice; and
  3. Be able to obtain funds to carry out their research from public and private sectors; and
  4. Inform the public of new information pertinent to cancer.

This will be done by:

  • Providing an integrated training program in cancer biology and treatment
  • Providing training in development of partnerships between basic and clinical researchers
  • Providing training in development of industrial partnerships
  • Providing stipends for MSc and PhD trainees in basic biological and physical sciences;
  • Creating "meet and interact" programs for research sponsors, researchers-in-training and senior researchers in basic and clinical sciences to speed the transfer of information from basic laboratories to the private sector, the clinic and the community

Full or partial funding for MSc and PhD trainees is offered. (NOTE: Postdoctoral fellows and clinical research trainees will not be provided with a stipend).
