The Career Development Program is devised to attract, train, and facilitate the success of young investigators pursuing careers in translational lymphoma research as well as provide a support mechanism for established investigators to refocus their work on lymphoma. This program provides fiscal support for one to three years to two individuals per year.
The program is implemented through the Administrative Core with SPORE Steering Committee, Executive Committee and External Advisory Board oversight. This program has well delineated processes for candidate recruitment, including an intensive effort to recruit women and minorities, an application, review, and selection process, a mentoring plan, a program of educational activities, and an evaluation process.
In aggregate, this program insures that City of Hope is productive in contributing to the next generation of highly trained and lymphoma focused investigators that will contribute to translational lymphoma research.
