Program Description

The ITCMS postdoctoral training program at the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center provides an exceptional interdisciplinary training experience, including outstanding basic and translational research opportunities with renowned investigators, and an extensive scope of workshops and training modules with an emphasis on cancer model systems.  This long-running successful program is under the directorship of Dr. Joseph Pagano, founder of the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. The success of the ITCMS program has moved in step with the success of the University of North Carolina and its nationally recognized cancer research efforts.  Under the guidance of a formal mentoring committee, ITCMS trainees participate in a monthly fellows-only research club and other dedicated programmatic activities in our rich and stimulating environment of cutting-edge research.
