The American Institute for Cancer Research’s Marilyn Gentry Fellowship is a research program that supports emerging leaders in the field of diet, nutrition, and cancer.
Offering support for up to two years, the fellowship provides early career investigators the opportunity to work in a mentored environment, and gives them access to the resources of the Institute for the Advanced Study of Diet, Nutrition and Cancer and the Michael Hooker Research Center at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
A special program, the Fellowship is dedicated to developing tomorrow’s leaders in nutritional research and cancer prevention. We have been proud to see numerous fellowship alumni go on to receive significant public attention, make meaningful contributions to our understanding of cancer risk, and introduce projects started in the Fellowship to new labs and colleagues.
The AICR fellowship is currently closed. Check back at a later date for more information.
