The virtual 2021 New Grantee Workshop brought together new extramural investigators funded by DCCPS who received their first National Institutes of Health (NIH) Research Project Grants (R01/R37) in FY 2020 and FY 2021. The primary goals of the workshop were to help build strong and vibrant cancer control research and cancer prevention programs and to help advance new investigators’ 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.
