Accelerate the discovery and translation of new knowledge about cancer risk assessment and prevention in the laboratory, the clinic and the community.
Strategy 4.1 - We will pursue research to gain a greater understanding of the roles that biologic, genetic, environmental, behavioral and social factors play in cancer development and translate those findings into more effective strategies to assess and reduce cancer risks.
Strategy 4.2 - We will investigate behavioral, surgical, medical and social interventions that can prevent or reduce the risk of cancer development.
Strategy 4.3 - We will conduct research on the differential impact of cancer in minority and medically underserved populations, particularly where the burden of cancer is excessive.
Strategy 4.4 - We will enhance and expand clinical screening, preventive services, and genetic and behavioral counseling to serve people at risk of developing cancer and cancer survivors.
Strategy 4.5 - We will develop, implement and disseminate programs to reduce the burden of cancer in all populations, with particular emphasis on effective outreach to underserved and vulnerable populations.
Strategy 4.6 - We will collaborate with our colleagues and community and global partners to advance research, public policy, clinical practice, and public and professional education in cancer prevention.
