The CRC actively supports teaching and postgraduate education by hosting the PhD and Master Programs in Cancer Biology of the University of Zürich. The aim is to promote interdisciplinary training and continued education to train the next generation of excellent researchers and physician-scientists in oncology.

To promote young (physician-) scientists and boost synergies between basic and translational/clinical research, the CRC funding program provides competitive funding in the form of fellowships covering the salary or protected research time of outstanding postdocs and physician-scientists engaged in collaborative projects between groups from preclinical and clinical fields.
