DCEG offers a range of fellowships and research training opportunities in our research Branches and with specific investigators.

Comparisons of two groups of people: those with the cancer under study (cases) and a very similar group of people who do not have the cancer (controls).
Studies of defined populations that are observed over time, either prospectively or retrospectively
Study of cancer risk among families in which disease occurs at a higher rate than in the "general population".
