The cross-disciplinary Cancer Prevention and Control (CPC) Program is the largest program at The University of Arizona Cancer Center and develops and implements highly interactive, multi-disciplinary research to lead to progressive reductions in cancer morbidity and mortality. There is ample evidence that full implementation of existing best practices for cancer prevention and detection could substantially reduce overall United States cancer incidence and mortality. Population-based, basic, translational and clinical research projects in the CPC program are dedicated to improving methods for cancer prevention, detection and control with consequent progressive reductions in cancer rates.
- Develop and conduct research studies in prevention, early detection, and risk stratification.
- Develop and conduct research studies in cancer control and population science.
- Reduce the disproportionate burden of cancer among minority and underserved populations in Arizona and the Southwest.
- Train students and post-doctoral fellows in cancer prevention research.
