The primary purpose of the course is to promote the understanding of the etiology of racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic cancer disparities and to develop improved approaches to reducing and eventually eliminating those disparities. This course will provide basic knowledge of attaining excellence in research focused on the basis of cancer health disparities and on reducing the cancer burden.

Dr. Renu Bhatt, Head, Department of Biotechnology at Guru Ghasidas University, Bilaspur (C.G), India said Mishra will serve as a foreign faculty expert and will deliver lectures and seminars on topics related to the course.

“We believe that this course shall give an excellent opportunity to participants from academic institutes and industry to learn about this unique subject,” Bhatt said. “Mishra’s visit also provides an opportunity to initiate future teachings and research collaborations between ASU and Guru Ghasidas University.”
