GIAN Short-term Course on Cancer Health Disparity | December 18-22, 2017

Short-term course on Cancer Health Disparity 


The current nature of biomedical research, especially cancer research and education, is heavily focused on the use of dedicated research facilities and working in teams and research collaborations. Although the primary purpose of the proposed course is to encourage the development of scientific research skills, stakeholders (undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty, the public and members from industry) will be exposed to cancer education and research preparation at Guru Ghasidas University. This opportunity will enable interaction between stakeholders to enrich their cancer education. The expectations of this course include exposing stakeholders to cancer research and education; preparing them for independent research; fostering self-confidence and team-working abilities in observation, recording, and interpreting data; providing mentoring interactions between the faculty and students; developing scientific communications skills; and providing exposure and career guidance and information about cancer careers in academia, government, and industry. Therefore, the overarching goal of this course is to promote the understanding of the etiology of racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic cancer disparities and to develop improved approaches to reducing and eventually eliminating those disparities. This course will provide basic knowledge of attaining excellence in research focused on the basis of cancer health disparities and on reducing the cancer burden. 

Objectives: The primary objectives of the course are as follows: 
• to tap the pool of talented students, faculty, and oncologists 
• to promote a Cancer Research and cancer health disparity issues 
• to encourage graduate and undergraduate students across various scientific disciplines to pursue careers in the biosciences through Cancer research 
• to attract industry partner to invest in cancer research to encourage oncologists to collaborate with basic scientists 
• to promote cancer awareness and healthy lifestyles in the community 

Course participants will learn about these topics through lectures and hands-on experiments. Also, case studies and assignments will be shared to stimulate research motivation of participants.
