As part of UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC), the Center for Cancer Prevention and Control Research Center (CPCR) leads JCCC's 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 JCCC and UCLA's 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. For information on post-doctoral fellowships, please visit
