Training The Next Generation of Researchers in Disparities, Equity

Focusing on the Journey

Fueled by the five-year, $2.3 million NCI T32 grant “Cancer Training in Disparities and Equity (C-TIDE),” Sylvester faculty are focused on ensuring that the next generation of cancer researchers continue the important work of addressing and reducing cancer disparities.

More specifically, C-TIDE focuses on using mentored postgraduate fellowships to train future researchers. Its coprincipal investigators Frank J. Penedo, Ph.D., associate director of Cancer Survivorship and Translational Behavioral Sciences, director of Cancer Survivorship and Supportive Care and co-leader of the Cancer Control Research Program at Sylvester, and Erin Kobetz, Ph.D., M.P.H., associate director for population sciences and cancer disparity at Sylvester and vice provost for research and scholarship at the University ofMiami, received supplemental NIH funding in 2021 to include artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and other relevant, advanced methodologies.
