STANFORD UNIVERSITY CANCER BIOLOGY PH.D. PROGRAM

Established in 1978, the Cancer Biology Program at Stanford University includes an interdisciplinary program leading to the Ph.D. degree. During the past 34 years, our understanding of cancer has increased dramatically with the discovery of oncogenes, tumor suppressor genes, pathways of DNA damage and repair, cell cycle regulation, angiogenesis and responses to hypoxia, and recent glimpses into the molecular basis of metastasis. In addition, methods of parallel analysis including gene expression arrays, protein arrays, and tissue arrays have begun to refine and redefine the taxonomy of cancer diagnosis. More »

STANFORD CANCER SYSTEMS BIOLOGY PH.D. PROGRAM

The Stanford Cancer Biology PhD Program is pleased to announce a new track focused on Cancer Systems Biology. Our objective is to train a new generation of researchers in cancer biology who are adept at computational analysis of complex molecular data of cancer. More »

Cancer Biology Postdoctoral Program

A training program for Postdoctoral Scholars in Cancer Biology is also supported by a grant from the National Cancer Institute. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and have completed their Ph.D., M.D., or D.V.M. Individuals should apply directly to a faculty member in whose laboratory they are interested in working. More »

Stanford University

Stanford University, ranked as one of the leading research universities in the United States, is a private university founded in 1885. The University, often referred to as "The Farm," is located 35 miles south of San Francisco in Palo Alto, California. The campus offers a renowned art museum, extensive athletic facilities, many student- and community-oriented activities, and a large amount of open space, including wildlife preserve areas for running and hiking. Approximately 13,000 students are enrolled at Stanford, divided about evenly between undergraduates and students enrolled in the graduate and professional schools.
