Academic Engagement

As part of our mission to support the next-generation of biomedical researchers, the Frederick National Laboratory has established a number of partnerships with colleges and universities. We also host academic scientists as visiting scientists and visiting scholars.

University Partnerships

The Frederick National Laboratory has established partnerships with several universities and other academic collaborators to co-host lecture series and other scientific events, provide faculty training and exchange, and host undergraduate and graduate student trainees. Our current academic partners include the following:

Visiting Scholars Program

The Visiting Scholars Program provides a unique opportunity for scientists to collaborate with the Frederick National Laboratory. Visiting Scholars are established scientists with specific expertise in an area of need at the Frederick National Laboratory. Visiting Scholars collaborate with a Frederick National Laboratory sponsoring investigator to develop and execute a research proposal and project aligned with their research interests and consistent with the mission of the National Cancer Institute. Visiting Scholars are usually in residence at Frederick National Laboratory for 6–12 months and are chosen in a competitive, peer-review process.
