The Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute Office of Cancer Research Training and Education works to integrate training and education of UAMS biomedical researchers and health professionals into program efforts to further the scientific mission of the Cancer Institute and to enrich the careers of its members. The office leads programs to train the next generation of cancer researchers who are very young (K-12) all the way to junior faculty (KL2).
In the past year, we have focused a lot on early exposure to cancer research through our partnership with the Little Rock School District. As you will read in these pages, our work with high school science teachers and students has been some of the most rewarding. We have a great group of future scientific leaders coming out of our schools.
