As part of the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Center for Cancer Prevention and Control Research Center (CPCR) leads our efforts in community- and population-based cancer control research.

The CPCR’s cancer control research:

  • Spans a continuum from primary prevention, screening and early detection to continuing care, rehabilitation and outcomes research.
  • Links laboratory and clinical research to individuals, families and communities.
  • Employs multiple research disciplines, including behavioral science, epidemiology and health services research.
  • Has a substantial focus on reducing cancer-related morbidity and mortality among low-income, ethnic minority and other underserved groups.

The CPCR is jointly housed in the Jonsson Cancer Center and Fielding School of Public Health, and its members represent a variety of departments in the Schools of Public Health, Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry and the College of Letters and Sciences.

The CPCR’s research, community education and service efforts are encompassed in our research program, Cancer Control and Survivorship.
