Clinical Oncology Research Fellowships in the USA from AACR

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is offering the Clinical Oncology Research Training Fellowships Program. This program is designed to provide an effective industry-academic clinical practicum with a unique training opportunity to develop academic clinicians in drug development. Each fellowship provides $100,000 over one year for the fellow to work on site at the facility of one of AACR’s pharmaceutical industry partners.

Program Description:-

  • This fellowship is designed for early-career clinical scientists who hold a medical degree (MD, DO, or MD/PhD) and are interested in acquiring the knowledge and skills related to clinical trial design and execution from the perspective of the pharmaceutical industry. 

  • The fellow will gain real-world experience in clinical development, including drug development, clinical research, clinical trial design, and data analysis. 

  • It is expected that the fellow will be accountable for executing clinical research project(s) and completing the research within the one-year program. 

  • Depending on the background of the fellow, additional focus areas may also be provided (e.g., preclinical research, biomarker discovery). 

  • Opportunities for publication and presentation of the research will be provided. The industry partners for this program and their research areas include the following:

    • Agenus (facility located in Lexington, MA): Clinical development of a pipeline of novel immune therapies

    • AstraZeneca (facility located in Gaithersburg, MD): Early-stage and late-stage clinical development in immuno-oncology

    • Bayer Healthcare (facility located in Cambridge, MA): Early-stage and/or late-stage clinical development in oncology

Program Duration:-

12 months. Note that the continuous duration of time spent on site at the industry site may be flexible and will be determined on a case-by-case basis between the fellow, the fellow’s academic institution, and the industry partner (e.g., if a fellow must return to their academic institution during parts of the 12 month term to complete clinic duties).

Eligibility Criteria:-

Applicants must:

  • Have a medical degree (including MD, DO, or MD/PhD), and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral degree.

  • Have enrolled in an accredited hematology/oncology or radiation oncology fellowship program at an academic, medical, or research institution within the United States.

  • Not be employees or subcontractors of a U.S. government entity or for-profit private industry or be clinical fellows applying from a U.S. government laboratory.


The grant value is $100,000 USD for a one-year period.
