Finding a Mentor in Cancer Prevention
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.
Applicants for the R25T multi-year 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.
Applicants for the Summer Program Experience in cancer prevention can select a mentor from among any of the numerous faculties at MD Anderson involved with cancer prevention research.
