Citations and Acknowledgment


Initiated in 2001, Partnerships to Advance Cancer Health Equity (PACHE), formerly known as the Minority Institution Cancer Center Partnership (MI/CCP), is a program that enables institutions serving underserved health disparity populations and underrepresented students (ISUPS) and NCI-designated Cancer Centers (CCs) to train scientists from diverse backgrounds in cancer research and to effectively deliver cancer advances to underserved communities. PACHE training awards are awarded to institutions, not to individuals. You can read more about the PACHE Program and funded partnerships here.

Partnership for the Advancement of Cancer Research has been proudly funded by the NCI PACHE Program since 2002. The funding we receive from the NCI is critical to reducing health disparities in our communities, and citing our grants in publications is a vital component to ensuring that PACR continues receiving funding and thereby changing lives.
