Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA)

This program provides the opportunity for recent doctoral degree recipients to enhance their research skills in the NCI environment.

Sponsor: National Cancer Institute/NIH


Trainees pursue both basic and clinical research free from the demands of obtaining grants and teaching, although opportunities to do both are available. Awards are granted for an initial 12-month period and may be renewed for up to five years, based on satisfactory performance and the continued availability of funds.
