An important element of the new program is training the next generation of researchers in cancer health disparities. Through the CaRE² initiative, leaders will train about 125 Black and Latino investigators, from students to early career scientists, increasing the workforce focused on translational cancer and enhancing our scientific community.
This program will build upon existing community partnerships to disseminate findings in the Black and Latino communities, educate people about pancreas and prostate cancer, and improve participation in biomedical research.
If you share our interest in reducing cancer health disparities, please consider becoming a member of the CaRE² center. Investigators, trainees, community leaders, and advocates are welcome.
