The TREND (Translational Research Education and Training to Eliminate Tobacco Disparities) Partnership is a theme-specific collaboration between City College of New York (CCNY), an institution serving communities with cancer health disparities, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center. The TREND Partnership (Website: https://trend.ccnysites.cuny.edu/; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) builds on a longstanding, well-integrated, mutually beneficial partnership between two exceptional institutions with unique capacities. Our ultimate goal is to improve education and training to reduce tobacco-related cancer disparities.
The TREND Partnership LibGuide provides an educational resource for students and investigators interested in pursuing tobacco and tobacco-related disparities research. The guide includes an overview of seminal work on tobacco, and tobacco-related disparities, highly-cited and recently published papers on the topic of tobacco and tobacco-related disparities, TREND Partnership faculty bios, and multi-media and other web-resources on tobacco, tobacco prevention and cessation and tobacco-related disparities.

The mission of the TREND Partnership is to reduce tobacco-related cancer health disparities through the development of translational tobacco disparities research and by providing tobacco-related cancer health disparities research training and education to students underrepresented in the field. This partnership project is likely to have a sustained and powerful impact on the field by increasing the technical capabilities and knowledge base in understanding and addressing tobacco disparities in a patient-centered, culturally competent manner.
