Postdoctoral Training

Training the future scientific leaders through postdoctoral programs is an integral aspect of UAB CCC. The various laboratories of the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center offer training opportunities for postgraduate scientists (biomedical sciences) and for clinician-scientists.

Our postdoctoral fellows gain the training, experience, skills, and credentials by training with leading scientists and physician-scientists engaged in cancer research. As an NCI designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, the UAB CCC offers access to cutting-edge core facilities in a very collaborative, scientifically enriching environment.

There are various seminars, retreats, research-in-progress seminar series, programmatic and thematic meetings that form additional key components of postdoctoral training at the UAB CCC.

The UAB CCC faculty support postdoctoral Ph.D. and M.D. physician-scientists through research grant funding and/or NIH-sponsored institutional training and fellowship programs.

Our Office of Postdoctoral Education offers various training opportunities that set our fellows on the trajectory to achieve individual goals.
