Cancer Prevention and Control Program

The TCI Cancer Prevention and Control (CPC) program encompasses a rich and complementary array of research projects in the areas of cancer prevention, control and care delivery. Its overarching goals are:

  1. Reducing the burden of cancer incidence and mortality Projects include developing effective early detection strategies, elucidating modifiable risk factors of cancer, and identifying biomarkers of cancer risk and outcome. Across these projects, addressing cancer disparities is of primary importance.
  2. Improving the life of people affected by the disease This goal is reached through patient-centered research designed to reduce the burden of cancer-related symptoms, reduce negative effects of treatment, identify and address key challenges in the delivery of patient-centered effective cancer care via comparative effectiveness research of screening and treatment strategies, ascertain and tackle determinants of cancer disparities, engage family caregivers and community and in so doing, improve patients’ access, experience and outcome.
