The Koch Clinical Investigator (KCI) program provides "top of their class" physician-scientists a unique opportunity to participate in cutting-edge cancer research while continuing clinical work at oncology treatment centers in the Boston area. The investigators' dual role ensures that they remain involved in clinical practice, which in turn benefits KI researchers by providing a front-line view of clinical challenges in cancer treatment.
The selected individuals receive dedicated lab space and research support for their three- to five-year appointment, and work closely with faculty mentors at the Koch Institute. They spend between 10 and 50 percent of their time treating patients.
Our first clinical investigator was Alice Shaw. Scott Floyd joined the clinical investigator program in 2012.
