The National Cancer Institute at Frederick and the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNLCR) offer several training and fellowship opportunities for students from the high-school through mid-career levels. These programs include the Werner H. Kirstin Student Intern Program (SIP) for high school students, the SIP for high school, undergraduate, graduate, or professional students; training programs for post-baccalaureate or post-doc levels; and the Visiting Scholars Program for mid-career researchers. The training opportunities are typically catered to aspiring scientists interested in cancer and AIDS research. The NCI at Frederick is comprised of two main components, the first being several intramural labs of the Center for Cancer Research (CCR), located mostly on the 68 acres of land within the walls of Fort Detrick. CCR has a range of laboratories from Cancer and Developmental Biology to Structural Biophysics. The second component is the Advanced Technology Research Facility (ATRF), located at Riverside Park. At the ATRF, several laboratories make up collectively what is known as the FNLCR. FNLCR offers a wide array of scientific services that run the gamut of the scientific research pipeline (from basic to translational to clinical research).
