Transdisciplinary (TD) Research on Energetics and Cancer (TREC) Training Workshop:
Funded by the National Cancer Institute and hosted by Yale University’s Dr. Melinda Irwin with a Senior Advisory Board and expert faculty from across the country, this program will build capacity in TD energetics and cancer research and is designed for post-doctoral and early career investigators. This five-day, in-residence workshop is offered annually and places emphasis on developing and applying TD competencies focused on energetics (i.e., obesity, diet and exercise) and cancer. Expert Faculty span an array of professional disciplines, from basic scientists to clinicians to behavioral and population scientists. Formal didactic learning will be integrated with one-on-one dialog and small group discussions to enable fellows to learn from each other, from faculty, and to develop a TD network.
The 3rd annual training course will be held June 16-21, 2019, at Water’s Edge Resort, Westbrook, CT. Costs will be covered (excluding ground transportation).
