The participants of the consortium combine interdisciplinary expertise and knowledge covering a wide range of topics in cancer genomics, which is essential for the training of the next generation of excellent scientists in this field.

Master students, PhD students and postdocs in the consortium receive their training in one of the research schools of the participating institutes:

Research school Cancer, Stem cells & Developmental biology (CS&D). The school combines research groups from Hubrecht, UMCU and UU and offers a Master and a PhD program website 

PhD program Clinical and Translational Oncology (CTO) at UMCU and UU, which has an emphasis on clinically oriented PhD candidates website

Oncology Graduate School Amsterdam (OOA), which combines cancer research groups from the NKI, AMC and the VU Medical Center (VUmc) website 

Medical-Genetics Centre South-West Netherlands (MedGen) at the LUMC and the Erasmus MC, which offers courses at the PhD and Postdoctoral level website 

Nijmegen Centre for Molecular Life Sciences research and graduate school (NCMLS), which offers Master, PhD and postdoctoral programs in Molecular Mechanisms of Disease website 

These training programs offer a variety of courses, seminar series, PhD retreats and Master classes to their students and have proven strong track records by delivering many of the best and brightest young cancer researchers in the Netherlands.

Note: Students interested in applying for a Master, PhD or postdoc program within the consortium should apply directly to the scientist they wish to receive their training from.
