Organization profile

Organization profile

he Cancer Control research program at Penn State Cancer Institute conducts research and interventions to reduce the incidence and mortality from cancer in Pennsylvania and nationally. The program includes faculty members from 18 departments across five Penn State colleges and/or campuses.

The leading causes of cancer are tobacco use and poor nutrition, and specific cancers are also affected by obesity, alcohol, infectious agents and air pollution. The program seeks to understand and develop approaches to limit the impact of these causes on cancer risk, especially in high-risk individuals and communities, through screening and clinical trials.

For patients, the program conducts innovative clinical trials in areas that may improve cancer treatment outcomes and prevent recurrences, including innovative weight-training programs and screening programs.

Fingerprint The fingerprint is based on mining the text of the scientific documents related to the associated persons. Based on that an index of weighted terms is created, which defines the key subjects of research unit
