The goal of PECaD’s Transdisciplinary Community-Based Participatory Research Training Program is to produce accomplished researchers capable of using the tools of community-based, clinical and basic research to establish independent research programs in the service of underserved patients and communities. The program is focused on cross-training academic and community partners in transdisciplinary community-based participatory research (CBPR) approaches.
The program assists junior faculty members and students in their career development by enriching their knowledge about and research focus on transdisciplinary CBPR approaches to reduce cancer disparities. Specific program components are available to senior investigators across the Washington University campus. The program also includes training in research and grantsmanship for community stakeholders who wish to participate in CBPR.
