The American Association for Cancer Research is inviting applications for its AACR Clinical Oncology Research (CORE) Training Fellowships program.
The program provides academic clinicians with $100,000 as well as an effective industry-academic clinical practicum in drug development at a facility operated by one of AACR's pharmaceutical industry partners. Time spent at the industry site over the one-year period may be flexible and is determined upon mutual agreement between the selected fellow, the fellow’s institution, and the industry partner. Indirect costs for up to a maximum of 20 percent of total direct costs are permitted.
The industry partners for the program and their research areas include the following:
Agenus (facility located in Lexington, MA) — Clinical development of a pipeline of novel immune therapies.
AstraZeneca (facility located in Gaithersburg, MD) — Early-stage and late-stage clinical development in immuno-oncology.
Bayer Healthcare (facility located in Cambridge, MA) — Early-stage and/or late-stage clinical development in oncology.
To be eligible, applicants must have a medical degree (MD, DO, or MD/PhD) and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral degree; have enrolled in an accredited hematology/oncology or radiation oncology fellowship program at an academic, medical, or research institution within the United States; and not be an employee or subcontractor of a U.S. government entity or for-profit private industry or be a clinical fellow applying from a U.S. government laboratory (e.g., NIH, CDC, FDA, etc.).
