Research Program

With a team of approximately 120 senior scientists serving seven basic research and cancer prevention departments, Roswell Park is recognized as one of the strongest cancer research programs in the country. The Medicine staff encourages fellows to seek out projects within the Departments of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Immunology, Cancer Genetics, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Cellular Stress Biology, Cancer Biology, and Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences under its concurrent guidance. Therefore, in addition to the considerable research opportunities available to the fellows within the Division of Medicine, the rich source of collaborative opportunities enabled by the basic cancer research departments allows a virtually limitless number of “special programs” in which fellows can participate.
