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 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. Both projects are moving forward, presenting data and involving students. 2 To increase the number of Xavier University investigators focused on PC research. One new project has been developed and is involving students. 3 To establish a long-term collaborative relationship between Xavier University and the TCC in PC research. XU faculty in the program are now members of the Tulane Cancer Center and involved in weekly seminars and focus group meetings.
