Cancer Research South school (CARES) was initiated 2014 based on a grant from the Swedish Cancer Foundation. The CARES School is aimed at providing a comprehensive set of method-based and clinically-relevant courses for graduate students at Gothenburg and Lund University. The courses will broaden the education of Ph.D. students at both universities and empower the students to reflect on the most important concepts in cancer research today. The CARES School will be organized around an 18-month educational cycle. The backbone will be participation in the advanced seminars and retreats organized by BioCARE. Coupled to these advanced seminars and retreats, 9 courses will be offered during each 18-month cycle. Each module will be approximately 1 week in duration, and will cover a broad range of subjects that will form a solid translational foundation for the early Ph.D. student, be they pre-clinical or clinical.
The research school is now open for applications. Dead line for the first announcement is June 3 2015
