Research Advocacy Training


Fight Colorectal Cancer, in partnership with academic institutions and corporate partners, is proud to host an annual Research Advocacy Training and Support program (RATS).

The goal of the training is to improve the ability of research advocates to effectively participate in the research process. The training is open to those touched by colorectal cancer.

Past RATS graduates serve on a variety of panels including:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
National Cancer Institute (NCI)
Cooperative Groups
Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPOREs)
Local Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) or Data Safety Monitoring Boards (DSMBs)
This is a unique program focused on the interests and needs of colorectal cancer patients and advocates. The program is limited to 3-5 new participants (based on available funding), who will be selected from submitted applications, and who represent a diversity of backgrounds and interests. The program is a 12 month commitment.
