Ryan Nguyen, DO, a hematology/oncology fellow at the University of Illinois Chicago, was named one of 20 FDA-AACR oncology educational fellows by the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR).

The FDA-AACR oncology educational fellowship – a joint effort of AACR and FDA’s Oncology Center of Excellence – is intended to promote scientific progress through research, collaborative learning, and education.

Nguyen and the other fellows in the 2020-2021 inaugural class will gain experience and become familiar with oncology drug development and the regulatory review process through interaction with experts and targeted educational activities. The 20 fellows took part in a competitive application process, and all are hematology/oncology fellows and early-career cancer investigators at cancer centers in the United States or Canada.
