For Graduate Students

At The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James), our nationally and internationally recognized multidisciplinary team of specialists, sub-specialists, researchers, scientists and educators combine their collective expertise to lead the nation in transforming oncology education, training and research.

Cancer is complex, and today, it is no longer solely defined by location or even by stage. That’s why finding and delivering the most effective new strategies for cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment all begin with one of the world’s top CCCs, the experts inside and the education and training they provide.

The OSUCCC – James offers several programs for graduate students interested in cancer research that engages with nationally and internationally recognized investigators who collaborate across departments, colleges, universities and research facilities worldwide – both at the basic science and clinical science levels – and with an innovative bench-to-bedside approach to cancer discoveries, treatment and care.
