Discovering the causes of cancer and the means of prevention

DCEG Visiting Scholars Program

The DCEG Visiting Scholars Program (VSP) brings leaders in the field of cancer epidemiology and genetics to NCI to share their expertise with scientific staff. The program is structured around intensive two-day visits by world-class scientists from the extramural community and includes a special Scholar Seminar and round-robin visits with DCEG programs and branches. In addition to stimulating new ideas and research directions, the VSP also focuses on career development for young investigators in keeping with the priority that DCEG and NCI give to high-quality research training. Program goals include fostering and reinforcing creative research approaches that enhance the intramural and collaborative research portfolio of DCEG and contribute to NCI and NIH strategic priorities.
