Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer (TREC) Training Workshop

Program Overview

We are building an inspiring community of transdisciplinary (TD) researchers in energetics and cancer and invite you to apply to our new mentored energy balance and cancer education program: the Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer (TREC) Training Workshop. Funded by a five-year grant from the National Cancer Institute, this unique educational program is positioned to build capacity in transdisciplinary energy balance and cancer research. The TREC Training Workshop is designed for post-doctoral fellows—primarily individuals in early careers who want to pursue TD research in energy balance and cancer. This Workshop will place strong emphasis on mentoring, developing and applying TD competencies, and a curriculum specifically focused on energetics and cancer. Mentors and teaching faculty represent a diverse array of professional disciplines, from basic scientists to clinicians to behavioral and population scientists and many others. Our in-person Training Workshop will integrate didactic presentations and professional networking across senior and early career scientists, utilizing formal learning with informal transdisciplinary collaboration. Time will be included for one-on-one dialog between fellows and faculty as well as small group discussions that will allow fellows to learn from each other and develop a network. Following on-site training, fellows will engage in sustained mentoring relationships with course faculty, and will have access to prior and future cohorts to facilitate networking opportunities. See the course curriculum here.

Mentored Training for Dissemination & Implementation Research in Cancer

Cancer is the leading cause of death among persons under the age of 85 and the second leading cause of death overall in the United States. To address this cancer burden, university-based research yields a growing supply of new discoveries, but research findings often take 10-20 years before being incorporated into practice. To address this gap, the science of D&I research has emerged. Our team at Washington University in St Louis has been the leader in developing the science of D & I research. MT-DIRC is a training program for those cancer control researchers who are seeking to gain better training in the field of dissemination and implementations science research.

The 2017 MT-DIRC Summer Institute will occur June 5th-9th 2017 in St. Louis, MO.
