T32 Integrative Training in Oncogenic Signaling
Postdoctoral Fellow Program

The Integrative Training in Oncogenic Signaling (ITOS) Program was developed by a select group of cancer scientists affiliated with the Hollings Cancer Center, a vibrant NCI-Designated Cancer Center. The Hollings Cancer Center is embedded in MUSC’s active and growing biomedical academic environment with state-of-the-art research facilities.

Program Goals

  • Provide proactive mentoring and oversight and research training in cutting-edge, cancer research methodology.
  • Develop useful academic and essential career development skills.
  • Foster collaborative, interdisciplinary interactions with faculty and other trainees.
  • Provide exposure to current cancer research discoveries and how these are being translated into novel approaches to prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

The ITOS Program will train five postdoctoral trainees each year for five years, offering outstanding research exposure, academic development and professional opportunities. Selected Fellows will utilize a wide variety of biological systems, approaches and technologies in the study and translation of basic cellular processes involved in the development of cancer. ITOS Fellows will also have access to the most modern types of high-resolution imaging, advanced microscopy, genome-level profiling, proteomics, gene manipulation and cell tracking, as well as exposure to systems biology and bioinformatics. Fellows will likely be supported in the Program for two years.
