|Cancer genomics training grant receives a five year competitive renewal|
The Cancer Genomics Training Grant, titled "Biostatistics for Genomics and Cancer" has been awarded a five year competing renewal. The Principal Investigator of this grant is Dr. Joseph Ibrahim. The training grant supports 5 predoctoral and 1 postdoctoral trainee.
This five year program is designed to train predoctoral (Ph.D.) and postdoctoral students in statistical genomics with the major emphasis in cancer genomics. The goal is to train biostatisticians in the biology, etiology, and genetics of cancer, as well as to train them to conduct state-of-the-art biostatistical methodologic research relevant to the genomics of cancer as well as in related areas of genomics. The goal is to also produce biostatisticians who can collaborate with other scientific researchers and oncologists on research issues related to genomics and cancer. The typical predoctoral trainee will be a college graduate or masters level graduate with an excellent academic record appropriate for this training area. The typical postdoctoral trainee will have highly relevant doctoral training in statistics, biostatistics, or related areas.
