Walther Oncology, Physical Sciences & Engineering
Research Embedding Program


The Oncological Sciences Center at Purdue and the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center have created the Walther Oncology Physical Sciences and Engineering Research Embedding Program through a collaborative grant from the Walther Cancer Foundation.

The objective of the program is to create a culture for the effective exchange of knowledge to allow clinical perspectives to drive the design of new chemistries, engineered devices/structures and mathematical predictive models that will make a critical difference in delivering effective cancer treatment.

Project proposals from Research Embedding Teams are requested that include:

  1. Purdue PI(s) from the physical and chemical sciences, computer sciences, mathematics, and engineering,
  2. Clinician scientists PI(s) at IU Simon Cancer Center,
  3. Postdoctoral trainee,
  4. Medical fellow/resident.

There is an expectation that each funded fellow will spend significant time, as dictated by the project, embedded in the other team members’ laboratory or clinic.

Purdue University investigators must be responsible for online submission as Purdue career account credentials are required for access to the online system.
