American Cancer Society Postdoctoral Fellowships
The American Cancer Society is the largest source of private, not-for-profit cancer research funds in the US, second only to the federal government in total dollars spent. This award is to support the training of researchers who have just received their doctorate to enable them to qualify for an independent career in cancer research (including basic, preclinical, clinical, psychosocial, behavioral, and epidemiologic research).

Irvington Institute Fellowship Program of the Cancer Research Institute
For more than five-and-a-half decades, The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) has been a leading and sustaining force in immunology and cancer immunology research worldwide. Through the advancement of these two scientific fields, CRI is learning how to manipulate the human immune system to target and attack cancer. Their goal is to discover and develop new, immune-based approaches to the treatment, control, and prevention of cancer.
The Irvington Institute Fellowship Program of the Cancer Research Institute (formerly called the Cancer Research Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship Program), established in 1971, is a long-standing continuous program to support and train young immunologists at top universities and research centers. It is a world leader in the funding of basic research in immunology-the study of the body's defense system against disease. Through Irvington's renowned Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, talented young investigators from the United States and around the world receive three years of funding to carry out research of their own design under the mentoring of senior scientists at leading universities and medical centers in the U.S.
