About the Program
The Cancer Population Science (CPaS) program at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center (GLCCC) is a T32 postdoctoral training program supported by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The CPaS program focuses on preparing trainees for independent research careers with a focus on translating basic and clinical advances into the clinic, community and policy. Translational research training is grounded in core competencies of team science, utilization of novel methods and technologies, applying multilevel approaches, knowledge integration to inform polices and care, and addressing health disparities.
The training and structure of the CPaS Program is guided by Khoury’s translational framework, impacting cancer outcomes across the translational continuum (T0-T4). In addition to a grounding in cancer biology and domain-specific expertise, our program provides training in several core competencies needed to drive high-impact research across this continuum. These include integrating novel technologies and methods, applying multilevel approaches, using knowledge integration to inform policies and care, and addressing health disparities–all using a team science approach.
Training faculty have a wide breadth of domain-specific expertise with funded research programs in behavioral science, health disparities, epidemiology, simulation modeling, cancer and aging, health services, health policy, cost-effectiveness analysis, and survivorship.
