Additional Information: The Experimental Transplantation and Immunology Branch (ETIB), in the Center for Cancer Research (CCR), at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), is dedicated to coordinated efforts in basic, preclinical and clinical investigations in the areas of immunology, hematopoiesis, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The goal is to generate information from basic and preclinical investigations leading to the development of new, curative hematopoietic stem cell transplant-based therapies for cancer. Information from new treatment protocols (including novel endpoints generated in the course of basic/preclinical research) is used to generate new questions and studies in the basic and preclinical research efforts. The department emphasizes excellence in these endeavors and acts to maximize strengths present in the community at large by vigorous intramural and extramural interactions and collaborations.

Interested individuals should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae and bibliography, a brief proposal of research interests, description of clinical experience, copies of up to five publications or preprints, and the names and addresses of three references to the below address.
