Cancer Research Network Scholars Program Accepting Applications
The Cancer Research Network (CRN) Scholars Program is accepting applications for the next round of training, which will begin in March 2013.
CRN is a consortium of nine nonprofit research centers based in health care delivery organizations that supports research at the population level. The CRN Scholars Program consists of 26 months of training that aims to help junior investigators develop research independence. Trainees will use CRN resources to conduct population-based, multisite, and multidisciplinary studies.
The program is open to junior investigators from academic institutions, cancer centers, and other research centers. Applications are due December 15.
The CRN fosters scientific and resource development in areas such as prevention and screening, epidemiology of cancer, prognosis and outcomes, health care quality and cost, communications and dissemination/implementation, and informatics. (More information can be found here.)
