ORD postdocs come from across the country and around the globe. Their research backgrounds cover a diverse range of scientific disciplines that are not limited to oncology. Most postdocs join our program directly from graduate school, though some have previous experience in either academia or industry. Our postdocs explore a broad range of research areas, including cancer cell signaling, cancer stem cells, cancer metabolism and epigenetics, anticancer drug pharmacology, and drug resistance. In addition to an outstanding research experience in a highly collaborative scientific environment, the ORD postdoctoral program is an exceptional opportunity for our postdocs to gain a first-hand view of the drug discovery and development process.
