T32 - Integrative Training in Oncogenic Signaling
The Hollings Cancer Center seeks applications for the NCI-funded Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Training Grant’s (T32) Integrative Training in Oncogenic Signaling (ITOS) Program. The goals of the program are to provide five postdoctoral trainees with proactive mentoring, oversight, and research training in cutting-edge methodology; to develop useful academic and essential career development skills; to foster collaborative, interdisciplinary interactions with faculty and other trainees; and to provide exposure to current cancer research discoveries and how these are being translated into novel approaches to prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. The ITOS Program, led by an outstanding cadre of program Faculty, offers distinct experiences and opportunities only afforded to the selected ITOS Fellows.
Post-doctoral Immunology Training Program (ITP)
The Post-doctoral Immunology Training Program (ITP) at MUSC is a broad-based inter-departmental training program that reflects the research interests of faculty at MUSC and the Charleston VA Medical Center. Research is centered on immune-mediated pathogenesis and covers the three basic areas of immunology, namely innate immunity, T cell biology, and antibodies/B cell biology. Disease related themes within this program include inflammatory conditions, immunity to infection, alloimmunity (organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant), autoimmunity, and cancer immunity.
