New Frontiers in Research Fund 2020 Exploration Grant

Atlantic PATH is thrilled to be involved in the newly funded project led by Dr. Juliet Daniel at McMaster University. The New Frontiers in Research Fund 2020 Exploration grants target high-risk, high-reward and interdisciplinary research. This work will focus on disparities in cancer incidence and outcomes in a Black Nova Scotian community (Shelburne, Nova Scotia). This research is truly interdisciplinary, incorporating natural and social sciences to consider the role of environmental, biological, genetic, socioeconomic, and lifestyle factors with the high cancer incidence and mortality in this community. We’re pleased to be working with our Dalhousie University colleagues, Dr. Ingrid Waldron (School of Nursing), Dr. Jong Sung Kim (Faculty of Medicine), Dr. Paola Marignani (Faculty of Medicine) and Dr. Charles Hostovsky (School of Planning).
