Cancer Research

CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (DCPC) conducts and supports studies, often in collaboration with partners, to develop and apply sound science to reduce the burden of cancer and eliminate health disparities. This research uses many different areas of expertise (behavioral science, economics, epidemiology, health services, medicine, and statistics) to address the public health research needs of DCPC programs, health care providers, people affected by cancer, and the larger comprehensive cancer control community.

DCPC scientists author or co-author many articles that are published in scientific journals each year. Selected articles have been summarized. Use our Citation Search Tool to find articles by title, journal, author, year of publication, and topic.

The Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (CPCRN) is a national network of academic, public health, and community partners who work together to reduce the burden of cancer, especially among those disproportionately affected.
