Workshop Overview

At the 2014 New Grantee Workshop, the Division of Cancer Control & Population Sciences (DCCPS) brought together approximately forty new investigators who received their first R01 in 2012 and 2013 to build a strong and vibrant cancer control research program and to help advance their careers. Through interactive sessions and informal activities, grantees learned strategies to successfully manage their grant; had opportunities to network with colleagues and DCCPS scientific staff; and learned about tools, trends, and resources to support their research.
