The education and training of present and future leaders in cancer research is a top priority of the Abramson Cancer Center (ACC). The newly established Cancer Research Training and Education Coordination (CRTEC) initiative seeks to promote and integrate the broad array of education and training opportunities at the Abramson Cancer Center and University of Pennsylvania for students, trainees, scholars, faculty, and research professionals, ranging from undergraduate courses in Cancer Biology to continuing medical education (CME) courses for practicing oncologists.
Connect with the CRTEC by contacting Cauleen Noël at firstname.lastname@example.org.
