Mentored Research Training

Team Mentoring Approach

Trainees will engage in mentored research training throughout their time in the program.  Training placements will be conducted in collaboration with a partnering clinical or community site. 

Pilot Projects

Each postdoctoral trainee will be provided with funding to conduct a research study of their own. The goal of this pilot work is to provide foundation and support for an emerging trajectory of  independent research in cancer prevention and control. Research topics will address important gaps in the scientific knowledge base, represent trainee areas of interest, and be recognized as a priority area for the partnering organization.

Appropriate types of pilot projects include:

  • Small-scale implementation trials
  • Evaluation of ongoing practice-based initiatives
  • Formative research
