In 2008, Lincoln University of Pennsylvania and Fox Chase Cancer Center formally embarked on a partnership to train a cadre of Lincoln students and faculty capable of conducting first-class biomedical, clinical, population-based and translational research in cancer; and create a pipeline of capable researchers available to reduce the problem of cancer health disparities. Conversely, Fox Chase’s researchers, staff and administration would be afforded the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the academic approaches to teaching the sciences as well as gaining an understanding of the cultural issues at hand.
