Request For Applications: DF/HCC and UMass Boston U54 Partnership to reduce Cancer Disparities

Significant disparities exist in cancer incidence and outcomes among minority and underserved populations. The goal of the Partnership is to improve cancer-related research, training, and outreach opportunities for under-represented minority (URM) students, fellows, and scientists; and to develop information and resources toward closing the cancer health disparities gap. For more information about the Partnership please visit www.umb.edu/u54.
