Cancer Biology is one of the Tracks of the Integrated Multidisciplinary Graduate Program (IMGP) (

The Cancer Biology Track ( provides Ph.D. training in cancer research. The goal of the Cancer Biology Track is to educate the next generation of cancer researchers to meet the growing demands for scientists trained in multiple facets of cancer biology. Faculty in this track possess a broad range of expertise in cancer research including genomics/proteomics, cell signaling and receptor biology, tumor immunology, DNA repair, structural biology, viral oncogenesis, drug discovery, chemoprevention, experimental therapeutics, and clinical trials. The curriculum stresses both basic and translational research to provide the broad background in oncology needed to foster the research accomplishments of tomorrow.
