Education & Training
We participate in four graduate programs in the UT Southwestern Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, as well as the Medical Scientist Training Program, the Clinical Sciences Training Program, and the Biomedical Engineering Program.
- Eight students are currently in residence working on their Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degrees
- Two students are supported by an Immunology training grant
- One student is supported by an NIH training grant
- One student is a Doris Duke Fellow
Center leaders have a long history of supporting education and training at UT Southwestern. Ellen Vitetta, Ph.D., was the course director for the medical school Immunology course for 19 years and is past director of the Immunology graduate program.
Faculty in the Cancer Immunobiology Center lecture in several graduate school courses, as well as train several postdoctoral fellows and mentor junior faculty in Surgery and Surgical Oncology.
