The UNC Integrated Translational Oncology Program (iTOP) training program focuses on training clinicians, basic scientists, and MD-PhD candidates in clinical/translational disease-based research.
UNC-iTOP is committed to training physicians-in-training (fellows, residents) in translational oncology bench research, and immersing PhD and MD-PhDs in a clinical/translational environment. The curriculum includes relevant introductory coursework, as well as mini-rotations (https://unclineberger.org/itop/) to provide trainees with an in-depth perspective on the different aspects of tissue-based research.
UNC iTOP provides research training support for up to two years. The program supports three post-doctoral trainees and one pre-doctoral trainee per year.
