The Ponce Health Sciences University (PHSU) and Moffitt Cancer Center (MCC) Partnership is a collaborative effort that promotes education, research, and training opportunities for young scientists and medical students in the area of cancer investigation in the Puerto Rican population. The main goal of the PHSU-MCC Partnership Research Education Core is to increase the number, competence and success of these cancer professionals.
The Research Education Core provides Ph.D and medical students the opportunity and funding to complete basic and translational laboratory research projects. Students from Ponce Health Sciences University can elect to undertake their project at MCC or at PHSU. Students from MCC and the University of South Florida with an ongoing interest in cancer research are eligible to train at the PHSU campus.
