Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer (TREC)
The TREC Training Workshop is designed for post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty—primarily individuals in early careers who want to pursue transdisciplinary research in energy balance and cancer. This Workshop places strong emphasis on mentoring, developing and applying transdisciplinary competencies, and a curriculum specifically focused on energetics and cancer. Funded by a five-year grant from the NCI, this unique educational program is positioned to build capacity in transdisciplinary energy balance and cancer research. The TREC Workshop provides state-of-the-art, evidence-based energetics and cancer education, mentoring and training.
Participants also work with faculty on establishing research priorities and develop studies that will fill key gaps in energy balance and cancer research. The overall impact of the Workshop is based on the degree to which participants obtain funding and publish innovative and translational research discoveries that ultimately improve the health of the population at risk for cancer as well as cancer survivors.
