Cancer arises in predictable patterns within human populations determined in part by an individual’s constitution and exposure to harmful and protective agents. The overarching goal of the Cancer Epidemiology (CE) Program is to reduce the cancer burden through identification and confirmation of biological factors affecting carcinogenesis across the cancer continuum that contribute to disease development, progression, and outcomes, and to exploit learned knowledge to inform advances in clinical and public health practice.
