Co-Leaders Drs. Lorraine Gudas, Ph.D., and Douglas Scherr, MD

As a key program in the Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) SPORE in Prostate Cancer (PCa), the Career Enhancement Program (CEP) aims to educate and mentor physician investigators and scientists in the conduct of PCa translational research.

Specific Aims:

AIM 1. Recruit, mentor, and advance the careers of junior faculty committed to translational research in PCA

AIM 2. Encourage select, experienced, and established midlevel and senior-level researchers to focus their research efforts on PCa
