The Visiting Scholars Program (VSP) is a unique opportunity for scientists to access
the intellectual capital and state-of-the-art facilities of the only federal national
laboratory in the United States devoted exclusively to biomedical research, the
Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research.
Consistent with our training mission, we are seeking early-career or established
investigators, either within or outside the cancer research community. The duration
and purpose of the visit to the Frederick National Laboratory can vary, but it is
intended to facilitate collaboration or enhance career development. The engagement
at Frederick may be part of a research effort to address persistent barriers that
have long impeded progress against cancer and AIDS. Or the purpose could be tied
to addressing new challenges, such as those posed by the NCI Director's Provocative Questions.
Visiting scholars will be integrated with teams of scientists at the Frederick National
We encourage scientists to explore our Visiting Scholar
Opportunities and submit an Expression of Interest.
