The K12 Pediatric Oncology Research Training Program provides a formal, comprehensive, multidisciplinary clinical research education program to train board-eligible or -certified pediatric clinical oncology faculty to design, implement, conduct, and analyze clinical research trials. Fully trained pediatricians who have successfully completed a pediatric hematology-oncology fellowship training program and have a career interest in pediatric oncology clinical research are eligible.
The K12 Pediatric Oncology Research Training Program trainees have the National Institutes of Health (NIH) designation of Paul Calabresi Scholars and are funded through a K12 grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
This is a comprehensive program in which trainees receive in-depth education through a core clinical research curriculum and participation in clinical research training in one of three specialized training tracks: genomics and precision medicine, immunology and cell therapy, epidemiology and survivorship.
These specialized areas have been purposely chosen as it is imperative that those pursuing pediatric oncology research possess a basic knowledge and understanding of research that is at the forefront of their discipline and that often cuts across different types of tumors.
Each of the clinical research pathways represents active and funded programs of significant research strength at our center, including mentorship with internationally recognized faculty and highly collaborative interactions between laboratory and clinical scientists. Within the field of pediatric oncology, they represent three critical areas, or tracks, in which clinical research success must occur for continued progress in childhood cancer outcomes.
Eligibility requirements include:
Successful completion or near completion of a three-year pediatric hematology-oncology fellowship training program at the time of K12 application submission
Board eligible in the pediatric hematology-oncology subspecialty
Be a U.S. citizen or non-citizen national of the U.S. or be lawfully admitted to the U.S. for permanent residence
A brief research plan (1-3 pages) of a proposed project in the candidate’s selected clinical research track: (references not included in page limitations)
A full curriculum vitae
Three (3) letters of recommendation
A personal statement (1 page) regarding interest in pursuing a career in clinical research focused on the desired POCRTP specialty track (Epidemiology and Survivorship, Genomics and Precision Medicine, Immunology and Cell Therapy)
