T32 Postdoctoral Fellowship

This joint T32 postdoctoral training program at the University of Hawaii Cancer Center (UHCC) and the University of Southern California (USC) Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center (NCCC) addresses cancer health disparities utilizing a unique resource, the Multiethnic Cohort (MEC) Study.

Trainees will experience the interdisciplinary nature of behavioral, environmental, genetic and epigenetics causes of cancer disparities through individually tailored educational and research experiences. Given that this postdoctoral fellowship is a bi-institutional training program (UHCC: lifestyle, diet/nutrition and biomarkers; USC: genetics/molecular epidemiology, biostatistics/bioinformatics), all postdoctoral fellows will be exposed to a wide range of innovative molecular and traditional epidemiological approaches.
