Career Enhancement Program (CEP)

Directors: Michael A. Hollingsworth, Ph.D. and Joyce Solheim, Ph.D.

Career Enhancement Program funds are used to support junior faculty or established investigators who wish to enhance or refocus their careers on translational research. This program is not a training program and does not support pre- or post-doctoral fellows, either pre-clinical or clinical. However, advanced post-doctoral or clinical fellows who provide a letter from an institution saying that the candidate will be joining its faculty within the year are eligible for this program. Investigators supported by NCI career development awards (K series) may also be eligible for support through this program.
