The ultimate goal of the Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences division is to keep people in a state of health and wellness, preventing them from crossing the threshold to disease and requiring treatment.
The division is home to one of the largest and most developed cancer prevention programs in the nation. It comprises five departments, multiple centers and two institutes. It is also home to one of the oldest and most successful cancer prevention research training programs in the country.
We strive to advance the fields of cancer prevention and population sciences and eliminate health disparities in cancer through multidisciplinary programs in research, patient care, education and cancer control.
Research underlies all that the Division does.
It is translated into advances in clinical care; into the education of future cancer prevention researchers and clinicians; and out into the community.
