Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

Mazumdar Shaw International Oncology Fellows Programme

The Koch Institute brings together researchers across scientific disciplines to address problems in cancer in a highly collaborative and innovative environment. Mazumdar Shaw Philanthropy funds the fellowships awarded to researchers conducting India-centric cancer research, or who have the intent to work in India. During the course of this two-year fellowship, recipients are expected to travel to India at least once. The fund has been ongoing since 2011.

We are so grateful for the opportunity to support young scientists at such a critical juncture in their careers, and to invest in science that has the potential to make a true impact in cancer care and outcomes, in India and globally.
