Supporting Early Career Researchers with new “Rising Scholars: Breast Cancer” program

Rising Scholars: Breast Cancer

We’re thrilled to launch “Rising Scholars: Breast Cancer” for  Early Career Researchers with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).

Our new program with the BCRF formalizes our decade-long partnership providing resources to Early Career Researchers working in the field of cancer at Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) and in underserved communities.

Underlining our relationship is the goal of redressing health inequity. A prominent example of this disparity: Black women experience higher mortality from breast cancer despite a slightly lower rate of occurrence than white women, and are 40% more likely to die of the disease.

The 2024 cohort of 25 global researchers will receive Nature Masterclasses training sessions with Nature editors and trainers, as well as scientific editing services, to develop their skills in scientific publishing, communicating research to the public, and data management.

If we want to move the needle towards diversifying the workforce, we have to support early career scientists by explicitly honing in on MSIs. These interactive and engaging workshops provide the tools, techniques, and strategies that help researchers develop their skills, confidence, and careers while improving the researchers’ publication output — Dorraya El-Ashry, Chief Scientific Officer at BCRF
