Welcome to the Research Advocacy Training and Support (RATS) portal.

The RATS program trains survivors, caregivers, and CRC champions on the science behind colorectal cancer, from bench to bedside, and how to effectively engage with researchers, academic institutions and cancer partners. The goal is that our research advocates become highly trained and well-versed voices in the scientific cancer community to serve on review panels, and on boards with organizations such as the FDA, DoD, and local Institutional Review Boards (IRB’s)

If you are interested in learning more about the RATS program or how to become a research advocate, please email rats@fightcolorectalcancer.org.

For Research Advocates

RATS training materials are divided into two categories, foundational and advanced. After you “graduate” from the foundational modules, you will be given access to the advanced portal.
