CRUK-NCI "Sandpit" Workshop on Implementation of Digital Health Interventions

NIH logoCancer Research UKThe National Cancer Institute (NCI), in collaboration with Cancer Research U.K. (CRUK), will host a “Sandpit” workshop (i.e., ideas lab) on October 28-31, 2018, in Potomac, Maryland.

This intensive residential workshop will bring together a broad, multidisciplinary group of participants to generate new insights on the contextual factors (e.g., social, cultural, and organizational) that influence the implementation and uptake of digital health interventions for cancer prevention. The research ideas generated at the workshop will inform dissemination and implementation efforts, with the ultimate goal of increasing the reach, adoption, and maintained use of digital health tools. On the last day of the workshop, CRUK will invite up to four of the teams formed at the workshop to apply for CRUK seed grants to test the feasibility of their ideas.

Early- and mid-career professionals based in the U.S. or U.K. who are interested in contributing their expertise, transformative ideas, and novel thinking are especially encouraged to apply. However, please note that Ph.D. students are not eligible for this opportunity.

Application deadline: July 18, 2018 at 5 p.m. EDT 

Workshop Date: October 28-31, 2018
