The CPRIT training program includes a recommended curriculum that is designed to provide a strong platform in basic biological or biophysical concepts in year one and flexibility to train in diverse cancer-related disciplines in year two. Two tracks are available: Basic cellular and molecular concepts and applications in cancer biology (Cellular Track); and Oncologic applications of quantitative and biophysical sciences studies (Biophysical Track).
The amount of coursework required is similar to that of current GSBS students and allows sufficient time to perform laboratory research. Flexibility in curriculum requirements is allowed for advanced students or in other circumstances, pending consideration by the CPRIT Graduate Scholar Steering Committee.
Important aspects of the training program include participation in the monthly CPRIT journal club and the CPRIT Annual Symposium.
