Curriculum

Here at Cedars-Sinai Cancer we are dedicated not only to providing top-tier care, but also to training the next generation of clinicians and industry leaders. As translational research continues to expand, both in industry and in medical settings, there is a growing need for researchers and staff that understand the regulatory processes required to advance scientific discoveries into product development and clinical trials. Our new programs seek to address this need.
