Message from TOPS Leadership
We are so proud to be able to offer the TOPS T32 Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. Research investigation in population science is essential to ensure that discoveries from molecular medicine and clinical trials translate to routine practice and ultimately decrease the population-level burden of cancer.
The Dana-Farber Harvard Cancer Center’s (DF/HCC) T32 Training in Oncology Population Sciences (TOPS) program will equip postdoctoral fellows with the skills necessary to evaluate cancer care quality and effectiveness, and to develop, test and implement interventions to improve care delivery thereby ensuring that T1/T2 discoveries translate across the T3/T4 bridge to achieve maximal impact on population health.
Postdoctoral fellows will pursue a two-year program of mentored research, coursework and professional skills training that supports innovation and leverages the expertise of DF/HCC faculty to prepare them for independent investigation in cancer-focused population science.
Here's to another successful year,
Jenny & Nancy
Jenny Mack - T32 PI
Dr. Mack is Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and an attending physician in the Jimmy Fund Clinic and at Children's Hospital Boston. Her research interests are in parent-physician and patient-physician communication, health care quality, and palliative care.
Nancy Keating - T32 PI
Dr. Keating is a Professor of Health Care Policy and Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a general internist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Dr. Keating’s research examines care delivery and outcomes for individuals with cancer using a variety of data sources, including linked cancer registry and administrative data, surveys of patients and physicians, and medical record data.
