New Grantee Workshop (Overview)


The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) is hosting a New Grantee Workshop on November 17-18, 2021.

The workshop brings together new extramural investigators funded by DCCPS who received their first National Institutes of Health (NIH) Research Project Grants (R01/R37) in FY 2020 and FY 2021. The primary goals of the workshop are to help build strong and vibrant cancer control research and cancer prevention programs and to help advance new investigators’ careers.

Through interactive sessions and discussions with DCCPS leadership and staff, grantees will learn strategies to successfully manage their grants, hear about tools and resources to support their research, and be given opportunities to network with DCCPS and other NCI scientific staff, as well as colleagues. By helping investigators sustain and grow their careers, DCCPS, together with their grantees, will be able to advance research across the cancer continuum.

We look forward to seeing you in November!
