Welcome to UNMC College of Public Health Cancer Epidemiology Education in Special Populations (CEESP) Program website!  The CEESP Program funds MPH and PhD students conducting cancer research related to minority populations within the U.S. and international settings.  The details about the CEESP Program for prospective students is under the Graduate Programs tab.  Individuals interested in the CEESP Program are encouraged to contact Dr. Amr Soliman.

The CEESP Program is a training and educational program to prepare master students in public health in the field of cancer epidemiology research in special populations (international and minority settings).  The CEESP program started in 2006 at the University of Michigan, where it was housed for six years.  In September of 2012 the CEESP program moved to UNMC.

The CEESP Program provides special educational opportunities for students to learn about cancer epidemiology in special populations as well as translation of epidemiology into cancer control and prevention interventions. Furthermore, the program provides mentored field internships for students through the ongoing faculty research projects and existing infrastructure of the UNMC College of Public Health in international and minority settings in the U.S. 

CEESP is funded by a grant from the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health (R25 CA112383).
