This position is located in the Toxicology and Pharmacology Branch (TPB), Developmental Therapeutics Program (DTP), Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis (DCTD) of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), The National Cancer Institute is responsible for planning, directing and evaluating a collaborative, extramural, contract-supported program in anticancer drug (small molecule) and anticancer biological (large molecule, i.e., vaccine or antibody) development. DCTD and the Center for Cancer Research (CCR) are working in close collaboration to reinvigorate cancer drug development at NCI. DCTD is expected to provide the preclinical pharmacology and toxicology expertise needed to generate data used in formulating recommendations for clinical dosing, dose escalation schemes and treatment schedules for clinical trials. DCTD provides drug development expertise to the NCI through the NCI Experimental Therapeutics (NExT) program. NExT is a joint therapeutics development program in which extramural and intramural teams have prioritized a pipeline of NCI-driven targeted therapeutics for development. This program combines the strengths of DCTD's extensive expertise in anticancer drug develop...ment with CCR's dynamic in-house research and its location within state-of-the-art facilities at the NIH Clinical Center.
