Cancer Prevention and Control

The overall goal of the Cancer Prevention and Control Scientific Program at the Division of Preventive Medicine is to reduce cancer incidence, morbidity and mortality, and improve outcomes, with special emphasis on underserved populations. The program also provides research training for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty. Members of the Cancer program are actively involved in behavioral intervention studies, prevention trials, observational and outcomes studies, cancer surveillance, and community-based research. The Cancer Prevention and Control Scientific Program Area has a well-established, well-funded, nationally recognized cancer research program. Funding sources include the National Cancer Institute, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and philanthropic foundations. The program has a significant number of scientists with research focus on African American and Hispanic populations. The studies conducted are collaborative and multi-disciplinary and capitalize on the strengths that UAB provides in its broad spectrum of researchers and scientists, including faculty at the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Center for Health Promotion.
