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 mid-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 the Frederick National Laboratory 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 Laboratory who:
We encourage scientists to explore our Visiting Scholar Opportunities and submit an Expression of Interest.
