The UTHealth Innovation in Cancer Prevention Research Training Program funded by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) has announced the 2021-2022 fellows, and four GSBS students are among the recipients:

The UTHealth-CPRIT Innovation in Cancer Prevention Research Training Program, sponsored by CPRIT, recruits junior doctoral and postdoctoral scholars from the Schools of Bioinformatics, Public Health, and Biomedical Sciences and other UTHealth institutions to ask important questions, apply the tools of innovative thinking and cutting edge research methods, engage in trans-disciplinary teams, tackle cancer disparities, and move the field of cancer prevention forward. All fellows take part in an integrative seminar in spring and fall, take short courses from other schools, lead sessions for the summer undergraduate trainees, and work on joint projects all while receiving fellowship support.
