Surgical Oncology/Cancer Immunotherapy Research Fellowships are available at the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health.

These fellowships are open to US categorical general surgery residents who have completed at least two years of general surgery residency. These two- or three- year programs provide surgical residents with an outstanding laboratory and clinical research opportunity.

These research programs are fully funded by the National Institutes of Health.

The fellowships provide an outstanding experience in clinical and laboratory research in surgical oncology and cancer immunotherapy. Laboratory research opportunities involve the study of immunotherapy, gene therapy, epigenetics, genomics, metabolomics, and stem cell research.
