The Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) is a global leader in cancer epidemiology and genetics research. With its cadre of renowned epidemiologists, geneticists, and biostatisticians, DCEG conducts population and multidisciplinary research to discover the genetic and environmental determinants of cancer and new approaches to cancer prevention. The Division’s research portfolio informs biological concepts, clinical practice, and public health policy. DCEG is uniquely positioned to conduct epidemiologic research projects that are high risk in nature and may require long-term commitments of scientific staff and resources, a coordinated national programmatic approach, or a rapid response to emerging scientific issues.
Through its programs in cancer epidemiology, genetics, statistics, and related areas, the Division:
