Meet the iCADS Program Mentors

iCADS Program Mentor, Karen Mann, PhD

The goal of the training program is to train the next generation of scientists proficient in both cancer research and data science. To achieve this, we have selected four groups of highly collaborative researchers from across different Departments and Divisions at Moffitt to serve as mentors and co-mentors. Trainees will choose one primary mentor from one of first three groups and two co-mentors from the remaining groups; ensuring trainees have two perspectives on their work to complement their primary training.
