Cancer Research editors called Allen Chung’s study on
colon cancer "striking." It led to a patent application and an
invitation to be part of a multisite national clinical trial.
Benefit directly from our Clinical and Translational Research
Center (CTRC). It offers innovative research tools and faculty
dedicated to collaborative translational research.
We guarantee you a full-tuition scholarship and a stipend so
that you can concentrate on your research throughout both your MD
and PhD studies.
Explore widely with us. You can earn your PhD in the traditional
sciences, in engineering, or in cancer research at the
world-renowned Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
Our program’s selectivity and small size—we have
fewer than 30 students—ensures that you receive individual
faculty attention and have a wide choice of thesis mentors.
