Cancer Epidemiology

This area is geared to identify risk factors for cancer, enabling further understanding of cancer causes and creation of strategies to reduce the incidence of cancer. The Program defines risk and translates epidemiologic research into preventive interventions; by identifying cancer risk biomarkers, basic science studies can be better targeted to relevant mechanisms of human carcinogenesis. The UW Department of Epidemiology has strong collaborative relationships with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s Public Health Sciences Division
