Message from Program Directors

Thank you for your interest in the Cancer Prevention and Control (CPC) in Priority Populations postdoctoral research training program. Our overarching objective is to develop clinical and non-clinical postdoctoral scientists dedicated to advancing CPC in priority populations who are disproportionately vulnerable to develop and/or suffer from cancer. Progress toward improving care and outcomes for priority populations has been slow, indicating a need to approach research through a new lens. A promising new lens is multidisciplinary team science, introducing a variety of perspectives to address a single question. Our goal is to train and launch the careers of a new generation of researchers who are prepared to apply a multidisciplinary approach to CPC research targeting priority populations. We aim to recruit candidates who show promise as future CPC investigators and will commit to providing outstanding mentorship, fostering a multidisciplinary team science environment and facilitating the attainment of academic career and life skills needed to pursue and sustain long-term success as independent investigators.

We encourage you to explore and read more about our curricular and research opportunities.
