Transdisciplinary (TD) Training Opportunity in Energetics and Cancer! 

This is the fourth year of building a diverse community of TD researchers, including those interested in cancer disparities. We invite you to apply to our mentored program:  The Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer (TREC) Training Workshop.  

The Workshop builds upon the NCI TREC Initiative and covers topics across the cancer control and T0-T4 continuua.

Funded by the USA's National Cancer Institute and led by Yale University’s Dr. Melinda Irwin, with a Senior Advisory Board and expert international faculty, this program builds capacity in TD energetics and cancer research and is designed for early career investigators (i.e., junior faculty and postdocs). This five-day, in-residence Workshop is offered annually and places emphasis on developing and applying TD competencies focused on energetics (i.e. obesity, diet and exercise) and cancer.  Faculty span an array of professional disciplines, from basic scientists to clinicians to behavioral and population scientists. Formal didactic learning is integrated with one-on-one dialog and small group discussions to enable fellows to learn from each other, from faculty, and to develop a TD network. 

The 4th annual course will be held June 21-26, 2020 at Water’s Edge Resort, Westbrook, Connecticut, USA.

Our grant allows us to accept up to 10 per cent of our cohort from international applicants (hence, up to two international scholars as our cohort size is 20 fellows).  Per our funding grant, all applicants’ proposals must be “strongly justified on the basis of exceptional relevance to the United States National Institutes of Health.”  Limited funding for airfare for international travelers is available.  All rooming costs are covered.  Each year to-date, we have accepted at least one international fellow.

Notification of Intent to apply (very simple, informal email) is due no later than Monday, Dec. 16, 2019Full application is due no later than Wed., January 15, 2020.
