Wash U Recieves $1.5 million for Translational Research Fellowships in Cancer Control

A first-of-its-kind mentored program for training in dissemination and implementation (D&I) research in cancer will train 48 fellows at Washington University in St. Louis. The $1.5 million grant, from the National Cancer Institute, will fund a training program to be developed by the Prevention Research Center, co-directed by Dr. Ross Brownson, a professor at Washington University’s Brown School. “Much of the cancer burden is preventable, yet there remains a large gap between the evidence known to control cancer and application in community and clinical settings,” Dr. Brownson said. “D&I research has emerged to shorten the ‘translation gap.’”
