About UNC iTOP

Sample of iTOP Activities

The UNC iTOP training program focuses on training clinicians, basic scientists, and MD-PhD candidates in clinical/translational disease-based research. We recognize that optimal care of patients afflicted with cancer can only be achieved through a multi-disciplinary approach. Our major focus is to educate future researchers from a variety of backgrounds in the approaches and tools that will be needed to perform tissue-based research.

UNC iTOP provides research training support for up to two years, training physicians-in-training in translational oncology bench research and immersing PhDs in a clinical/translational environment. The curriculum includes relevant introductory coursework as well as mini-rotations (see Sample of iTOP Activities) to provide trainees with an in depth perspective on the different aspects of tissue-based research.

The program supports three post-doctoral trainees and one pre-doctoral trainee per year.
