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.
