The Cancer Prevention Interdisciplinary Education Program is a National Cancer Institute funded program to faculty partnering with the Oncological Sciences Center and the Discovery Learning Center. The program provides support and curricular activities for undergraduate and graduate students with the goal of attracting and training researchers in the area of cancer prevention. The program is designed to support research activities, and provide educational and research opportunities that will support continued student interste and maximize abilities to advance cancer prevention research, including enhance the ability of the students to work in interdisciplinary teams. These efforts to train students will provide a new pool of researchers that will aid in encouraging optimal progress in cancer prevention research, ultimately to significantly reducing the development of cancers and subsequent cancer deaths.
The Cancer Prevention Interdisciplinary Education Program (CPIP) is a National Cancer Institute - funded education program that builds on the focus and expertise of cancer prevention interdisciplinary research at Purdue University. The program provides support for four graduate fellowships and 10 undergraduate to participate in the internship program.
The CPIP is an undergraduate and graduate interdisciplinary program in cancer prevention designed to:
