Cancer Biology Program

Graduate Training in Biomedical Research Leading to a Ph.D.

  • The interdepartmental program leading to the PhD in Cancer Biology combines training in the basic biomedical sciences with opportunities to apply clinical and translational research to studies on human cancer.

  • Our highly accomplished training faculty includes over 40 basic and clinical scientists from 12 departments. Areas of emphasis include lung, breast, head and neck, prostate and blood cancer.

  • Our curriculum is rigorous, yet flexible, and provides opportunities for advanced study in cellular and molecular oncology, as well as the translational medical sciences.

  • Our research community includes a NCI/NIH designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, which brings together scientists with diverse research approaches to focus on the problem of cancer.

  • The Cancer Biology Program is located in the greater Denver area on the Anschutz Medical Campus, in the heart of the beautiful Rocky Mountain region.

  • The Cancer Biology Training Program is a member of The Cancer Biology Training Consortium (CABTRAC).   CABTRAC is a national consortium that was established in 2005 to facilitate the exchange of ideas between individuals and institutions dedicated to the mission of training the next generation of cancer researchers. The consortium works closely with over 50 institutions within the US as well as the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Training Branch. For more information see
