International Fellowships for Beginning Investigators (ACSBI)

Advance your career by visiting another institute: American Cancer Society international fellowships for beginning investigators (ACSBI).

The ACSBI fellowship emphasizes the transfer of knowledge from the host institute to others at the home institute. It offers the fellow the opportunity to be mentored by experts in the chosen field, receive hands on experience in clinical, behavioural or basic research, intellectual stimulation, research guidance, narrative transfer and many other opportunities to evolve scientifically and academically.

The goals include not only developing future leaders in cancer research in low/middle income countries, but also facilitating a global effort in cancer prevention and control. This will be done by developing the necessary intellectual infrastructure in home countries (since ACSBI fellows must return to their home institute), encouraging collaborative interactions to facilitate interdisciplinary basic and applied cancer research, and establishing a network of researchers and translational scientists for rapid dissemination of new knowledge and technology in developing and sharing of best practices.

Further details can be obtained from the specific website for Beginning Investigators program on the Union for International Cancer Control website. Application forms may be obtained from the Fellowships Department or downloaded from the Internet website at Union for International Cancer Control.
