Discovering the causes of cancer and the means of prevention

Physician-scientist Early Investigator Program in DCEG

The Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) offers training to clinically-focused investigators through the NCI Physician-scientist Early Investigator Program (PEIP), administered by the Center for Cancer Research.

PEIP trainees who come to DCEG will have the opportunity to develop a research program in cancer etiology and prevention in a highly collaborative environment, with access to high-quality data from long-term family- and population-based epidemiologic and clinical studies and utilizing our high-throughput genomics facility, molecular pathology resources, biostatics and epidemiology methodological expertise, and resources at the NIH Clinical Center.

Trainees will have the opportunity to conduct research in cancer genetics and epidemiology alongside investigators in DCEG.

Learn more about the PEIP program and the application process.
