Cancer Prevention & Control
The long-term goal of the Cancer Prevention and Control (CPC) research program is to reduce the incidence, morbidity and mortality of cancer for the citizens of Indiana and beyond.
The program has two themes:
Theme 1: Risk reduction and early detection
- Aim 1: To determine the genetic, biological, and behavioral risk factors for cancer.
- Aim 2: To evaluate innovative models and interventions to reduce cancer risk, improve screening and increase early detection.
Theme 2: Survivorship and symptom science
- Aim 1: To identify biologic and pharmacogenomic risk factors associated with treatment-related toxicities.
- Aim 2: To develop and test interventions to reduce treatment-related symptoms and enhance survivorship.
