Training Programs

PECaD supports many efforts to aid researchers conducting community-based research and to back community partners in research. We have a T32 training grant (NIH T32 CA190194) to train postdoctoral fellows in transdisciplinary cancer prevention and control research.  Our goal is to produce accomplished researchers capable of using the tools of community-based and clinical research to establish programs in service of underserved patients and communities. To meet our current fellows, visit

Additional funding for cross-institutional cancer research has been obtained through a NIH grant in partnership with The Southern Illinois University School of Medicine (SIUSM) to help train post-doctoral scholars and faculty at both SIUSM and Washington University School of Medicine in the area of rural cancer disparities.  The grant includes opportunities for training, mentorship, education, and pilot research.
