National Cancer Center Partnership Expected to Advance Cancer Research at YSPH, Yale

Representatives from Yale and the National Cancer Center of China exchanged gifts in recognition of their new partnership.

On May 1st, representatives from the Yale School of Public Health, the Yale Cancer Center, and the Yale Institute for Global Health met up with representatives of the National Cancer Center of China in order to sign a memorandum. This marks the beginning of a new partnership between Yale and the National Cancer Center of China, which will allow for collaborative research and workforce training between nations.

Internally, both institutions have been collaborating informally on workforce development and research training through the NIH Fogarty training program. Nevertheless, the new program formalized the collaboration and will likely make data and research sharing easier and more accessible for researchers at both institutions.
