Carolina Cancer Nanotechnology T32 Training program

This is a 24-36-month mentored training program with focus area of research on cancer nanotechnology offered at The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and funded by an NIH T32. The overarching goal of the program is to equip outstanding young scientists with the multidisciplinary concepts and skills needed to improve cancer diagnosis and therapy

This position will perform PK and PD modeling and other pharmacometric analyses as part of in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo PK studies of various nanoparticles.

The training program includes both didactic and experiential training. Trainees selected for the program may choose to work with any of our 22 faculty members encompassing 11 departments including physical and material scientists, biomedical engineers, basic biomedical scientists, pharmaceutical scientists, and clinician-scientists, all of whom have demonstrated exceptional track record in research and mentorship. Active co-mentorship of the trainee’s research project will be offered. In each case there will be a physical scientist and a biomedical scientist acting in tandem to guide trainee research. This approach will provide unique multi-faceted training experience leading to significant contributions to cancer nanotechnology.

The trainees will benefit from exceptional environment and resources within UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, Center for Nanotechology in Drug Delivery, Carolina Institute for Nanomedicine, and Carolina Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence. The workshops topics will reflect major themes of the Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer. The C-CNTP members also embark on a broadly based outreach program to disseminate concepts concerning cancer nanotechnology both within the university community and to the public at large.

Due to NIH restrictions for T32 training, all applicants must be either US permanent residents or US citizens.
