Grants are the foundation of Programs within the Arizona Cancer Center because they reflect the efforts of our scientists to be at the leading edge of efforts to prevent and cure cancer in ever more effective ways. The grants that members of BSSRP have been awarded are eclectic and reflect broad range of transdisciplinary and translation research initiatives.
We will provide information on funding opportunities in the near future. If you have questions meanwhile please contact Scott Leischow, Associate Director, Behavioral and Social Sciences Research Project at (520) 626-9574.
Human Subject Procedures
Training is now available for individuals conducting Social/Behavioral and Biomedical research through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI).
Simply go to www.citiprogram.org and register with a user name and a password of your choice. Read the required modules for either Social/Behavioral or Biomedical research and answer the 3-6 questions in the quiz at the end of each module. The system automatically keeps track of your progress. The system also updates the Human Subjects Protection Program regarding your completion of the CITI training.
CITI training is valid for two years. CITI will email you a reminder one to two months prior to the expiration of your training. To maintain your training, you must complete the CITI refresher course prior to the expiration of your previous training. Instructions on how to reach the refresher course are available at your Learners Menu at www.citiprogram.org.
