The central mission of the Penn TREC Survivor Center is to advance science on energetics and cancer survivorship, toward the goal of improving both the length and quality of cancer survivorship.
The Penn TREC Survivor Center invites investigators to submit developmental projects in the area of nutrition, energetics, energy balance, obesity, physical activity and cancer. These projects should provide an avenue for introducing and integrating new investigators and innovative technologies, methodologies, and/or research in the TREC infrastructure.
The deadline has passed for developmental projects applications for the June 1, 2013 – May 31, 2014 funding period. Please check back for future updates.
Two missions of the TREC initiative are to provide training opportunities and to have meaningful collaboration across geographically separate sites to promote transdisciplinary research. In support of these missions, the TREC Coordination Center has established a $20,000 per annum TREC Knowledge & Education Expansion Project (KEEP), to be shared evenly among the four TREC sites (i.e., $5,000 for each TREC Research Center). The KEEP funds support educational opportunities for TREC trainees.
