Research Education Core

We leverage the strengths of ChicagoCHEC institutions and partners to support students, trainees, and faculty.

The academic and career trajectory to pursue a profession in health and science is often referred to as a “pipeline.” Unfortunately, many students never had the idea planted in them that they can enter a health or science related career. Through our work with individuals from all career stages, we know that even the most talented students and professionals may need training, mentoring, and other opportunities to successfully launch and advance their careers. In the Research Education Core, we leverage the strengths of ChicagoCHEC institutions and partners to propel students, trainees, and faculty from all backgrounds toward success in health and cancer research careers.
