NCI CRCHD Career Development and Scientific Workshop
About the Workshop
This dual focused workshop, sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities (CRCHD), is comprised of two independent sessions. The first session of the workshop is tailored for students, fellows, and new investigators who intend to apply for Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences (CURE) funding opportunities. The second session of the workshop is tailored for investigators interested in new NCI-sponsored funding opportunities aimed at promoting translational research in the field of cancer health disparities (CHD).
Due to the high level of interest in the workshop, registration will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
Two sessions will run concurrently for this workshop. Please see session options below:
