The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has renewed funding for the T32 training grant “Multi-disciplinary Training grant in Cancer Research (MTCR)” at the University of Chicago for another 5 years to support select graduate students at the University of Chicago working in cancer research focused projects. The core mission of the MTCR is to train the most talented pre-doctoral students to dissect and design new ways of attacking cancer as a disease, whether that be through achieving a better understanding of the mechanistic underpinnings of cancer initiation and progression, developing novel tools to monitor and modulate cancer cell responses to therapeutic intervention, or to exploit increased information about human cancer datasets and new computational methods to identify the most vulnerable cancer pathways.
