Finding a Mentor in Cancer Prevention
By selecting a DCPPS (Division of Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences) department faculty page listed below, applicants to the program can choose from a large number of potential mentors conducting research in cancer prevention. The majority of the mentors have a primary faculty appointment within the division. However, any faculty member at MD Anderson directing a research project related to any aspect of cancer prevention is eligible to mentor the students in the program.
Mentor selection requirements are as follows:
NCI Funded R25T Predoctoral and Postdoctoral training positions must select two faculty co-mentors, with at least one of the co-mentors having a faculty position within the Division of Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences at MD Anderson.
The Summer Program Experience in cancer prevention requires only one mentor from among any of the numerous faculties at MD Anderson involved with cancer prevention research.
