About National Cancer Institute
The overarching goal of the CPFP is to provide a strong foundation for scientists and clinicians to train in the field of cancer avoidance and control. As part of the program, we offer training toward an MPH degree at an accredited university during the first year, followed by mentored research with investigators at the NCI or FDA. Outstanding opportunities for cutting-edge research in the basic, quantitative, social and behavioral sciences, and in clinical cancer avoidance, have been the hallmarks of the CPFP since its inception in 1987. Furthermore, a partnership between the NCI and FDA provides opportunities for avoidance research in drugs, biologics, and medical devices. Other educational opportunities are provided all over the fellowship to complement the research training, including the NCI Summer Curriculum in Cancer avoidance; the Molecular avoidance Laboratory; the NCI Cancer avoidance and Control Colloquia Series; and the weekly Fellows' Research Meeting.
