Fellowships and Positions – Clinical Training
Since the doors opened at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center more than 50 years ago, NCI research clinicians have played a singular role in advancing cancer care. A mark of this success is the NCI's pioneering work in immunotherapy—boosting the body's own cancer -fighting potential. In the 1980s, NCI's Surgery Branch investigators were largely responsible for advancing the treatment of metastatic melanoma and kidney cancer.
Today groundbreaking NCI's clinical research continues at the newly expanded NIH Clinical Research Center. Robotic surgery brings unprecedented precision to prostate cancer surgery. Clinicians visit their patients and return to their lab work all under the same roof. And personalized medicine—when a patient's cancer genome is profiled in order to match the gene changes that are present with the most appropriate treatment—has come to clinical trials
