Abstract

Cancer biology is a young field. The science continues to evolve rapidly. Students now identify the field of cancer biology as a primary area of lifelong learning and research; they often make this career choice early in their scientific training. The goal of the Cancer Biology Training Consortium is to promote consistent, high-quality training for this new generation of cancer biologists. This curriculum for these students recommended here is based on a consensus of viewpoints of cancer biology educators throughout the United States, and provides the framework for training in this distinct scientific discipline.
