This project of Research Internships Abroad (BEPE) is linked to the PhD project "Diabetes Mellitus and the Head and Neck Cancer" with a grant from FAPESP (2013/21702-3) and Regular FAPESP (2013/20548-0). The PhD project aims to evaluate the association of diabetes mellitus and cancer of the head and neck. Worldwide, few studies have investigated the association of diabetes mellitus (DM) as a risk factor for cancer of the head and neck (HNC). This present internship proposal, at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, intends to broaden the discussion of the work conducted in Brazil with the collaboration of researchers having extensive knowledge in the subject area of this study. The supervisor of this internship has experience in research related to diet, metabolism and cancer, and is involved in large international studies in this area. The objectives of the internship include enabling the use of advanced statistical adjustment, analyze and discuss the results of the project developed, confront the findings with those obtained in ongoing research at the internship institution and also increase contacts with international research groups. The realization of the internship will most certainly bring direct benefits for the completion of this project and with the academic training of the intern. (AU)
