A minimum of 170 fully functional comprehensive cancer treatment centres are needed to manage cancer effectively, Nigeria currently has only 8 cancer centres with a radiotherapy device. In addition to this infrastructural challenge is the chronic shortage of oncology professionals.
We at CCIN are working towards grooming a new generation of these professionals. Our mentorship program will help young scientists and clinicians  to connect with senior Nigerian colleagues who can guide them through the rigorous process of applying and securing MSc, PhD or clinical positions in both local and world leading institutions.
