Our physical and intellectual environment fosters team science through meetings, seminars, retreats, and mentoring across the educational spectrum including junior faculty. We engage in a variety of forums that galvanize communication and foster collaboration among our faculty and faculty in other departments and research program. The goal of these standing activities is to create a dynamic and innovative environment focused on maximizing research to address cancer-related problems.
Grand Rounds in Population Science (GRIPS)
These monthly seminars feature presentations on cancer prevention and control research by outside speakers. During their visit, invited speakers meet with both faculty and trainees for cross-fertilization of research ideas.
Scheduled faculty meetings are held eight times per year and provide a forum for faculty to learn about Moffitt resources useful for their research activities and to hear about completed research, studies in progress, or planned investigations from colleagues.
Scheduled quarterly, these are joint meetings with segments presented by members of both population science departments (Cancer Epidemiology and Health Outcomes and Behavior). Division meetings allow effective dissemination of information common to population scientists and promote integrated discussions on shared research needs.
Bi-monthly Cancer Epidemiology "teas" provide an informal setting for discussion of a spectrum of topics including novel research ideas, troubleshooting, the latest published findings, obstacles to the scientific or academic process, and others’ ongoing research. Bring yourself, bring a friend, bring your mug, and enjoy this creative time with your colleagues.
