Nutrition and Cancer Prevention Research Practicum

The 2017 John Milner Nutrition and Cancer Prevention Research Practicum will take place March 20 to 24, and is now accepting applications – application deadline is December 2, 2016. The Practicum will be held at the National Cancer Institute in Rockville, Maryland, the NIH Clinical Center and the USDA Beltsville Human Nutrition Center. This week-long educational offering provides specialized instruction about the role of diet and bioactive food components as modifiers of cancer incidence and tumor behavior. The intent of the Practicum is to introduce participants to research currently being conducted in the field, expose them to available research opportunities, and lay the foundation for future researchers in diet and cancer prevention. This practicum is best suited for those interested in expanding their research applications and applying research to their practice.
