Cancer Institute A national cancer institute
designated cancer center

Goals -- Dynamic, Interactive Research

A major goal of the Population Sciences research programs, Cancer Epidemiology and Cancer Prevention and Control, is to stimulate collaborations with research programs both within the Stanford Cancer Institute and outside this organization. Researchers in the Cancer Epidemiology and Cancer Prevention and Control areas orchestrate efforts to integrate new knowledge in surveillance, etiology, patterns of care, cancer progression and survival, cancer prevention and early detection, community outreach, and efficient intervention techniques. The cornerstones of population sciences research are basic, translational, laboratory and clinical research.

Using an interdisciplinary approach, the programs add value to the Stanford Cancer Institute through their population-based study resources that provide a strong basis for developing important interdisciplinary collaborations and conducting translational research. The Cancer Epidemiology Program and Cancer Prevention and Control Program in the Population Sciences area combine the expertise and resources of the Cancer Prevention Institute of California and Stanford University including the Schools of Medicine, Behavioral and Social Sciences, Computer Science and Engineering, Economics, and the Graduate School of Business. Specialist include Epidemiologists and Biostatisticians, Bioethicists, Bioinformaticians, Cultural and Social Anthropologists, Bioengineers, Surgeons and Geneticists. Study centers represented include Stanford Prevention Research Center, Clinical Cancer Genetics Center, Stanford Genome Technology Center, Stanford Center for Bioethics, Stanford Center for Integrated Medicine , the Asian Liver Center and the BioX interdisciplinary program, Spectrum – the Stanford Center for Clinical and Translational Education and Research, SCCGTR Office of Community Research, Center for Cancer Systems Biology, and Stanford Center for Clinical Informatics .
