Starting in 2019, the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) will join the NCI the Clinical Investigator Development Program (CIDP), administered by the Center for Cancer Research. With this new mechanism, DCEG will offer training to clinicially-focused investigators in the field of epidemiology and genetics. The CIDP is designed for individuals in the critical transition period between clinical fellowship and scientific independence.
CIDP 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 clinical resources of the NIH Clinical Center.
For questions about becoming a CIDP investigator in DCEG, contact Sharon Savage.
