The Cancer Biology and Therapeutics (CBT) training program provides UCI graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with comprehensive, highly interdisciplinary training that includes cancer biology, the most current research methods, and a focus on translational science such as the development of novel cancer therapeutics and diagnostics. This foundation together with professional development activities produces well-trained experts armed to successfully attack the cancer problem from vantage points in both academia and industry.

The CBT program includes trainees from the School of Biological Sciences, the Henry Samueli School of Engineering , the School of Physical Sciences, and the School of Medicine. UCIH SOM RGB

                             CBT is funded by a T32 training grant from the National Cancer Institute that was renewed in July 2015. Additional support is provided by the UCI Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center and its basic research arm, the UCI Cancer Research Institute.
