Since 2004, the NCI and the NIH Department of Nutrition at the Clinical Center have sponsored the Nutrition and Cancer Prevention Research Practicum. This one-week educational opportunity provides specialized instruction in the role of diet and bioactive food components as modifiers of cancer incidence and tumor behavior. Topics include pre-clinical and clinical findings related to the following:
- Cancer trends;
- Ethics and health-related messages;
- Molecular targets and biomarkers;
- Nutrition-related databases; and
- Bioactive food components.
The program is geared to those interested in pursuing a career in nutrition and cancer research; or to those who may incorporate research into their current practice -- dietetic interns, graduate students, dietitians who have an interest in research, and other healthcare professionals who have a sustained commitment to nutrition and health promotion. Introducing current opportunities available in the field, the practicum establishes a foundation for future researchers.
Prior application is required and space is limited.
