Facilities and personnel for virtually any activity in applied or basic research are available. Clinical-pathologic correlative studies by fellows are encouraged and may be supervised by any member of the faculty. Fellows are particularly encouraged to avail themselves of research opportunities in molecular pathology, through techniques such as laser capture microscopy. Opportunities to train in other fields can be arranged with faculty to meet a fellow’s particular interests. Fellows are also encouraged to take full advantage of the University of Chicago’s vast resources, including enrollment in course work offered by the different graduate programs of the Division of Biological Sciences.
All fellows are expected to develop at least one research project, assume primary responsibility for obtaining and analyzing data, present the results at a scientific meeting and write and submit a completed manuscript for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
