Abstract:

This program aims to help eradicate prostate cancer PC disparity in African Americans through educational and research programs. Our hypothesis is that through PC education, exposure to PC issues, and participation in PC research, a meaningful number of African Americans will be able to contribute to the elimination of disparity in PC. Our program comprises three Specific Aims. 1 To develop, promote, and sustain independent, competitive research and training programs at Xavier University. This Specific Aim has already proceeded significantly toward its goal each major research project has either presented or is scheduled to present its research at symposia, and for each project several African American students have contributed to the original work. 2 To increase the number of Xavier University investigators focused on PC research. This Aim has also met with early success one Junior Faculty has been identified and matched with an experienced researcher from the mentoring Tulane Cancer Center TCC. 3 To establish a long-term collaborative relationship between Xavier University and the TCC in PC research. In this area, progress has developed slowly beyond the three focused partnerships mentioned in the first two Aims.
