Cancer is the leading cause of death among persons under the age of 85 and the second leading cause of death overall in the United States. To address this cancer burden, university-based research yields a growing supply of new discoveries, but research findings often take 10-20 years before being incorporated into practice. To address this gap, the science of D&I research has emerged. Our team at Washington University in St Louis has been the leader in developing the science of D & I research. MT-DIRC is a training program for those cancer control researchers who are seeking to gain better training in the field of dissemination and implementations science research.
The 2017 MT-DIRC Summer Institute will occur June 5th-9th 2017 in St. Louis, MO.
