Applications open for UTHealth Houston-CPRIT Innovation Program

By Roman Petrowski, Office of Communications

The UTHealth-CPRIT Innovation in Cancer Prevention Research Training Program is seeking applications from postdocs committed to a career in cancer prevention research through April 1.

All trainees must reside in Texas during the fellowship and be officially enrolled in a collaborating UTHealth Houston school: McGovern Medical School, Public Health, Biomedical Informatics, or Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. The program begins June 1, 2022.

The renewed and revamped program sponsored by the Cancer Prevention & Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) is recruiting junior doctoral and postdoctoral scholars from UTHealth Houston to ask important questions, apply the tools of innovative thinking and cutting-edge research methods, engage in trans-disciplinary teams, tackle cancer disparities, and move the field of cancer prevention forward.

All fellows take part in an integrative seminar in spring and fall, take short courses from other schools, lead sessions for the summer undergraduate trainees, and work on joint projects. Postdocs can be based in one of the partner schools or other UTHealth institutions and participate in the UTHealth Postdoctoral Certificate Program.
