Sources of Funding
e-Health Technology is a cost-recovery service established with partial funding from The Duncan Family Institute for Cancer Prevention and Risk Assessment, whose mission is to make scientific discoveries focused on the earliest stages of cancer development and translate these discoveries into novel applications for new or existing tools for research. Partial funding is also provided by the Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG).
e-Health Technology is relevant to the entire spectrum of cancer prevention research, from studying behavioral changes that reduce the risk of cancer in healthy populations, to preventing second cancers and cancer recurrence, to enhancing health in cancer survivors. Having e-Health Technology as a resource:
- fosters collaborations within the Behavioral & Health Disparities Research Program and with other CCSG programs
- provides researchers with the tools to address multiple risk factors with strategies that can cut across several disciplines
