Sep 15,2022 | Consortium_staff Training Opportunities

The Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network ( is a CDC-funded academic research network with a Coordinating Center located at UNC-CH and eight Network Centers at universities around the nation (UNC-CH, University of South Carolina at Columbia, Emory University, University of Iowa at Iowa City, University of Arizona at Tucson, NYU-CUNY, University of Colorado Denver, and University of Washington at Seattle). The mission of CPCRN is to accelerate the adoption and implementation of evidence-based cancer prevention and control strategies in communities, enhance large-scale efforts to reach underserved populations and reduce their burden of cancer, and deepen our understanding of the predictable processes that achieve that end. The Network engages its members in a variety of topical cross-center collaborations in the form of workgroups that work on projects and programs aligned with the network’s mission.

The (CPCRN) Scholars Program – a time-limited educational and training program that strives to educate students, postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty, practitioners, and other health professionals in dissemination and implementation (D&I) science focused on cancer prevention and control and health equity – is accepting applications. This year-long virtual training program will provide new D&I science researchers with fundamental skills in cancer-focused D&I science, connections to a large network of D&I researchers, and an opportunity to build an individual D&I project.

The deadline to submit applications is September 30.
