Student Training and Research in Tumor Immunology (STaRT)

Through its Student Training and Research in Tumor Immunology (STaRT) grant, the Cancer Research Institute seeks to attract bright young minds to rewarding careers as cancer immunologists. STaRT grants provide up to $60,000 of support over two years for graduate students conducting thesis research in the area of tumor immunology.

Students selected for the program can receive early exposure during their formative studies to exciting, emerging areas of investigation within the field of cancer immunology. In addition, student participation in annual Cancer Research Institute symposia introduces them into the tight-knit community of leading tumor immunologists — helping to establish a relationship between these up-and-coming research leaders and the Institute.
