Predoctoral Training

Predoctoral trainees are selected on a competitive basis from current graduate students in the following graduate programs at the University of Minnesota:

Students in the MCDB&G and BMBB programs begin their training in a combined program in Molecular, Cellular and Structural Biology (MCSB).These programs provide broad training in core disciplines that are essential to cancer research: biochemistry, cell biology, immunology, microbiology and genetics. The curriculum within each program allows the student and faculty preceptor the opportunity to design a program of training that incorporates core knowledge in these disciplines, while allowing for specialization in a specific area. Specific graduate-level courses in Biology of Cancer and Translational Cancer Research are offered by the MICaB graduate program and are required for all trainees supported by the Cancer Biology Training Grant.
