Scientific Focus: Cancer Prevention and Control Program
Our Cancer Prevention and Control Program has three main themes:
- Reduce cancer incidence and morbidity through comprehensive tobacco control research.
- Improve survivorship outcomes through better epidemiological surveillance and integration of patient-reported symptoms and late and long-term effects into cancer care delivery.
- Test novel interventions to improve the prevention, early detection and treatment of cancer, and translate the findings into routine clinical practice and community strategies.
Cross-cutting these themes is a commitment to eliminating cancer-related disparities that arise due to socioeconomic status, geography and race and ethnicity.
