Fox Chase Cancer Center-Lincoln University Collaborative Grant Funded by NCI
Fox Chase Cancer Center and Lincoln University, an historic black university in Chester County, have formed a partnership for cancer research and training.
This project, known as a MinorityInstitution/ Cancer Center Partnership, was recently awarded a four-year P20 feasibility grant by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Cancer health disparities pose a significant problem in medical care: The cancer death rate is 1.4 and 1.2 times higher in African-American males and females, respectively, compared to Caucasians. This partnership is an important component in strengthening Fox Chase's commitment to diversity and healthcare disparity research.
