The GUIDE (Governors State University – University of Illinois Cancer Center Disparity Education) Cancer Research Training Project is a collaborative initiative between Governors State University (GSU) and the University of Illinois Cancer Center (UICC) at Chicago. This collaboration will enhance the capacity of both institutions to conduct research to understand and reduce local cancer disparities and their determinants. The institutions will jointly conduct a pilot research project addressing a local, cancer-related health disparity. A training program for GSU junior faculty and undergraduate students designed to attract and prepare investigators for careers in cancer disparities research will also be developed. The training and education program will leverage research expertise in cancer-related health inequities at the UICC and will incorporate successful elements of research training programs developed at GSU and the University of Illinois at Chicago.
