Symposium: THE FUTURE OF PUBLIC HEALTH-Tuesday, May 10, 2005

This symposium brings together a panel of the nationís most prominent public health experts, each of whom has headed a major federal public health agency or office. They will explore the future of public health in America and seek consensus on solutions, address the challenges facing public health in America and strategies for improving the system, and consider key issues the policy makers must face in the coming years, including:


  • What is the optimal relationship between the federal government and state and local health agencies?

  • How can we build and sustain public support for a strong public health system?

  • How should public health intersect with the medical care system?

  • What key regulatory changes would support a stronger public health system?

NCI Fellowship Opportunities

Did you know... NCI was recently ranked in the Top Ten "Best Places for Postdocs" in an international survey

NCI maintains a secure resume databank of applicants for available or future positions, including postdoctoral fellows. Our Investigators are able to search this databank for candidates who match their interests. If you would like to post your resume, enter Starcatcher, then choose "postodoctoral fellowship" for U.S. citizens, nationals, or permanent residents; or "postodoctoral fellowship (foreign visiting fellow)" for all others.


You may also submit your CV directly to a specific sponsor within any of our divisions below:

Center for Cancer Research (CCR)

Conducts basic and clinical cancer research in a variety of disciplines, including molecular medicine. It encourages collaborative efforts, interdisciplinary research, and translational science. It also coordinates its activities with the Institute's intramural and extramural activities. CCR supports and trains new investigators and provides patient care, patient treatment, and education to the community.

Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG)

Focuses on population-based research on environmental and genetic determinants of cancer. Interests include genetic predisposition, lifestyle factors, environmental contaminants, occupational exposures, medications, radiation, and infectious agents, as well as statistics and methods development.

Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program (CPFP)

While DCP is an extramural division, it sponsors the Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program. The program provides postdoctoral training in laboratory-based, clinical, epidemiologic, statistical, behavioral, policy, and ethical aspects of prevention research. Preceptors come from all NCI intramural and extramural divisions as well as from local academic institutions.

IMPACT: The fact that the gene mutation arises naturally suggests that tolerance levels to alcohol may be genetically wired in people, too. If so, the findings could eventually help identify children and adults at higher risk of developing alcohol dependency, so these individuals can make an informed decision about whether to drink. The study results may also speed the development of new drugs that target alcohol-sensitive GABA receptors, leading to better treatments for alcohol poisoning and addiction.
