The Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) is the world's first cancer research institute and a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. Our graduate programs are in collaboration with the State University of New York at Buffalo. Students have the opportunity to choose among the laboratories of over 130 RPCI faculty members as major professors to guide research. The internationally-recognized scientists and world-class facilities at RPCI provide an outstanding training environment for graduate students. Because RPCI is a cancer research hospital, students have a wide spectrum of choices for their research focus, from the basic investigation of cancer mechanisms to translational/clinical research with direct relevance to disease treatment.
