The fall 2020 Cancer Research Training Program funding competition is now open!

Twice each year the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute holds a funding competition as part of its Cancer Research Training Program (CRTP).

Funding for these awards has been made available from a variety of sources, the most significant of which is received from the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation (DMRF).
