The intramural program of the NCI is one of the largest centers for cancer research in the world, with approximately 250 Principal Investigators and 500 Postdoctoral Fellows. While outstanding scientific research is conducted at NCI, many of the scientists who go on to lead their own laboratories have few management skills. The Scientific Management Training (SMT) course focuses on personnel and project management. In the art of supervision section, it is emphasized that each personnel is unique and should be treated properly to achieve desired outcomes.

The participation of NCI PIs and Fellows, who need to develop scientific management skills is encouraged.
