As part of UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC), the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control Research (DCPCR) leads JCCC's efforts in community- and population-based cancer control research.
The DCPCR’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 DCPCR is jointly housed in JCCC and UCLA's 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.
