Abstract:

Meharry faculty mentored six enthusiastic Fisk university students by providing training opportunities in ongoing research projects. Four students were related as excellent, one as good, and one as fair. Two of three seniors applied for postgraduate positions. The students reported that the program met its training objectives but one student did not understand the objectives of the research project and one other student expected a lot more supervision than received. Four posters are near completion and will be presented at the next student research day at MMC. We met all for training program aims to 1. Improve knowledge about PCa epidemiology and ethnic disparity. 2. Enhance familiarization with research methods, and critical review of the literature. 3. Improve understanding of communication networks in the African-American community, and Human subject protection training. 4. Improve laboratory and epidemiological methods and skills.
