Event Type:  Seminar (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  Inaugural CURE Distinguished Scholars Seminar – Teams: Leveraging the Power of Collaboration to Advance Your Science and Reduce Disparities
Description:  The National Cancer Institute’s Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities (CRHCD) is proudly celebrating 21 years of the Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences (CURE) program this year! In honor of this milestone, CRCHD is launching a new lecture seminar series, the "CURE Distinguished Scholars Seminar Series.” The seminar series will present talks from nationally recognized former CURE scholars who will share their leading-edge research in cancer and cancer health disparities.

Former CURE scholar, Lewis R. Roberts, M.B., Ch.B., Ph.D., Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Mayo clinic in Rochester, MN, will be the inaugural honored guest speaker for this new lecture series.

Dr. Roberts will present his work in liver and bile duct cancers, featuring his research on the mechanisms of liver and biliary carcinogenesis and biomarkers to improve diagnosis; and the diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis and liver cancer in immigrant African and U.S. communities.

The CURE program supports underrepresented individuals across the academic continuum – beginning with middle school students and continuing through independent cancer researchers – through a pipeline of research funding opportunities. Learn more about CURE at
