Global Education and Training Initiative (GETI) for Beginning Investigators
The ACSBI fellowship emphasizes the transfer of knowledge from a host institute to the applicant and others at the fellow's home institute. It offers the fellow the opportunity to be mentored by experts in their chosen field, receive hands on experience in population, behavioural, clinical or basic research, intellectual stimulation, research guidance, narrative transfer and many other opportunities to evolve scientifically and academically.
The goals include not only developing future leaders in cancer research with an orientation to research in low- and middle-income countries, but also facilitating a global effort in cancer prevention and control. This will be done by developing the necessary intellectual infrastructure in home countries (since ACSBI fellows must return to their home institute), encouraging collaborative interactions to facilitate interdisciplinary basic and applied cancer research, and establishing a network of researchers and translational scientists for rapid dissemination of new knowledge and technology in developing and sharing of best practices.
