The AC3 takes a mulit-level approach to addressing racial disparities in cancer:
Our investigators work to fill in the "gaps" in current scientific knowledge through molecular epidemiology and behavioral studies.
We focus on resource building to support efforts toward the establishment of multi-center studies of cancer risk and outcomes through the development of standardized data collection instruments and protocols for biospecimen collection.
Education and Training
We aim to promote diversity in research through capacity building efforts that involve training in research skills, grant writing and manuscript preparation workshops for AC3 research investigators and minority training programs for students. We increased awareness of the value of research and promote informed decision making in research participation by providing educational workshops that consist of presentations specifically designed to translate research results to the community.
