Dispatches from Implementation Science at NCI
By: Frank Perna
Earlier this fall, I had the honor of organizing the NCI Exercise Science and Skin Cancer Prevention Research meeting on September 26-27, 2018, in Rockville, MD. The meeting brought together a multidisciplinary group of approximately 30 researchers and practitioners spanning exercise science disciplines, scientific officers of professional organizations, sports apparel and material science experts, engineering and atmospheric scientists, exercise behavior change investigators, skin cancer prevention and dermatology experts, and implementation scientists.
