In August 2014, Dr. Boone participated in the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Integrative Molecular Epidemiology Workshop that was held in Boston. Only 50 individuals from a large pool of applicants were invited to attend this five-day workshop. The training was designed to accelerate the training of the next generation of cancer researchers who must be well-skilled in the integration of biology and epidemiology in studies of etiology and outcome. The majority of cost for the selected workshop attendees is covered by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health and Novartis.
