The Short-Term Scientist Exchange Program (STSEP) at the Center for Global Health (CGH), National Cancer Institute (NCI), promotes collaborative research between researchers at the NCI and foreign cancer researchers. The program’s objective is to facilitate scientific interactions between non-United States (U.S.) scientists with researchers at NCI. Highly-qualified cancer scientists, researchers, and experts will be provided the opportunity to work alongside scientists at a host NCI intramural laboratory, division, office, or center. These collaborative research exchange visits may range from one week to no more than six months in duration. Participants will be expected to share their newly gained skills and knowledge with colleagues for building research capacity in their respective countries and regions. To this end, the program sponsors expect that participants will resume their position(s) with their home institutions at the close of their exchange.

Agencies Involved: National Cancer Institute (NCI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
