Postdoctoral training in cancer immunology

We are one of Canada's leading cancer immunology programs. Our research centre has the unique advantage of being located within a cancer clinic that provides care for over 4,000 patients per year, giving unlimited opportunities for bench-to-bedside research. Our innovative interdisciplinary program allows postdoctoral fellows (Ph.D. and/or M.D.) to train across the entire research continuum, from basic to translational to clinical projects. Fellows are given the opportunity for co-mentorship by laboratory scientists and clinicians, giving them broad exposure to both scientific and clinical issues related to cancer. Our goal is to train the next generation of scientists and clinicians to develop and apply immune-based solutions to the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer.
