Cancer Research Training Program


The London Regional Cancer Program, Western Department of Oncology, Lawson Health Research Institute and Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry have joined forces  to create the London Strategic Training Initiative in Cancer Research and Technology Transfer (CaRTT). CaRTT provides:

Training in cancer science and treatment to CaRTT Scholars. CaRTT provides trans-disciplinary training links among basic and clinical researchers. Cancer research training experience is given to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students; postdoctoral Fellows; basic and clinical faculty members from all disciplines relevant to cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up; clinicians and clinical trainees concerned with cancer and related chronic diseases; members of community groups engaged in fundraising and cancer awareness and education; and principals of private sector companies developing cancer drugs and treatments. A course given in partnership with the Richard Ivey School of Business also brings basic cancer research trainees and the business world into productive contact with each other.
