The Cancer Biology Graduate Program—jointly administered by The Wistar Institute and Saint Joseph’s University—trains individuals with outstanding potential for a successful academic or industrial career in cancer biology and drug development.
This comprehensive, integrated cancer biology graduate program is centered on the involvement of both Wistar and Saint Joseph’s University faculty and provides an inclusive, broad-based graduate educational venue that complements and expands existing opportunities for cancer training in the greater Philadelphia area. Successful candidates will be granted a Ph.D. in cancer biology from Saint Joseph’s University.
This program focuses on cutting-edge strategies to understand the molecular basis of cancer initiation and progression, while also emphasizing the process of drug discovery and therapeutic development. The curriculum equips students to succeed in a multidisciplinary environment as both hypothesis-driven academic cancer researchers and industrial discoverers.
