Mentored Training for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer -New training program launched at Washington University in St. Louis

If you wish to join an exciting learning collaborative of dissemination and implementation (D & I) researchers, we invite you to apply to our new program entitled: Mentored Training for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer (MT-DIRC).  We invite applications from doctorally-trained individuals (PhDs, MDs) whose wish to focus on D & I research in the areas of cancer prevention and early detection.  Most of the fellows will be individuals in early career stages, but some will be mid-career scholars who want to pursue D&I research in cancer. Diverse scholars from a range of disciplines are encouraged to apply. Participation in this program is two years. Program includes on-site training June 2-6, 2014 as well as continued mentoring during project development. Applications for the training program are due February 1, 2014.

The North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences (NC TraCS) Institute, the integrated home of the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, recently developed a web-based portal with new resources and tools to help guide your D&I research agenda. Many proposals now require a dissemination or implementation component, even if it is not the primary intent of the project.

The D&I portal has sample grant proposals, a list of journals most likely to publish your study results, and presentations on new methods. Especially helpful for grant submissions and publications are the implementation tools and references for implementation theories and frameworks. Please visit www.tracs.unc.edu/diportal  to learn more about what the portal has to offer.
