Featured Webinar Series
SeqSPACE Webinar Series Adds Events Through 2021
The purpose of the Sequencing Strategies for Population and Cancer Epidemiology Studies (SeqSPACE) forum is to provide an opportunity for researchers to share lessons learned and practical information regarding the application of next generation sequencing to cancer epidemiology studies. Pre-registration is required.
Meet Our Associate Director
An Interview with Kathy J. Helzlsouer, M.D., M.H.S.
Dr. Helzlsouer speaks about her background in oncology and epidemiology, the people and experiences that drive her passion for cancer research, and her ideas about future directions for EGRP.
Cancer Epidemiology in Hispanic Populations Virtual Workshop
This NCI-sponsored workshop, to be held September 14-16, 2021, will consider the challenges, identify opportunities, and develop ideas for increasing Hispanic representation in cancer epidemiological studies.
Environmental Epidemiology Webinar Series
The Environmental Epidemiology Webinar Series will highlight novel cancer research strategies and needs focused on the exposome and early life environmental exposures and events.
Open Cancer Research Training Award Fellowship Opportunities
Please share our Fellowship opportunities for research training in clinical & translational epidemiology and diet, weight, & physical activity assessment.
Opportunities in Obesity and Cancer Research
The National Institutes of Health (NIH), including the National Cancer Institute (NCI), funds a broad spectrum of research on obesity. Learn about new NCI obesity-focused funding opportunities, upcoming webinars, and other research resources.
Request for Information
NCI is seeking information on datasets that capture detailed measures of diet, physical activity, and sleep. The individual-level data should be collected within a similar time period, though the behaviors are not required to have been measured in the same 24-hour period. It is important to note that datasets must include 24-hour data on all three behaviors. Responses will be accepted through August 22, 2021. View NIH Guide notice NOT-CA-087 for more details.
Learn about sleep assessment-related funding opportunity announcements; research resources, including assessment tools, data and surveys; and scientific webinars and workshops.
Food Insecurity, Neighborhood Food Environment, and Nutrition Health Disparities: State of the Science
Join NIH for a virtual nutrition health disparities research and implementation workshop on September 21-23, 2021. The goal is to review the state of the science around food insecurity and the neighborhood food environment, identify research gaps and explore innovative research strategies that could inform policies and practices.
