cholangiocarcinoma research fellowship program

Cholangiocarcinoma Research Fellowship Program

In 2015, the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation established a Cholangiocarcinoma Research Fellowship Program aimed at supporting early career researchers focusing on the study of cholangiocarcinoma. The goal is to raise awareness about cholangiocarcinoma and inspire innovative, quality research.

Collaboration is essential to the success of any research program. The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation chooses grant recipients carefully to ensure that they will build working relationships between researchers, institutions, and industry and share information, samples, and expertise with others in the field.
