Preceptorships — Division of Cancer Prevention
Foundations of Prevention Research Groups
The Basic Prevention Science Research Group develops and implements a program of molecular prevention of cancer by integrating laboratory-based basic/clinical research of NCI intramural and extramural research divisions with that of the Division of Cancer Prevention. Attention is given to molecular genetics and molecular pathogenesis of precancer and the application of these approaches to clinical trials in cancer prevention.
Acting Chief: Peter Greenwald, M.D., Dr.P.H.

Molecular studies of cancer prevention using state-of-the-art technologies that focus on tumor suppressor genes, oncogenes, various signaling pathways and repair mechanisms.
Studies are performed at the Frederick Cancer Research and Development Center, NCI, Frederick, Maryland. Fellows will have the opportunities of exposure, training, and publication in the latest in the area of molecular genetics and technology. An outline of the projects currently being studied include:
