Description

In this Cancer Center Support Grant renewal proposal, the American Health
Foundation requests continuing support of its Cancer Center activities.
The American Health Foundation Cancer Center is a basic research center
which is unique in its emphasis on cancer prevention and control. The
Center features a highly interdisciplinary approach combining
epidemiologic investigations, basic laboratory studies in cancer
etiology, and cancer control activities. Since most of the American
Health Foundation's support is derived from peer-reviewed National Cancer
Institute grants and contracts, the parent organization and the Cancer
Center are virtually identical. The Center's research is focused upon
prevention of the major human cancers with particular emphasis on
tobacco-related cancers such as lung, oral cavity, esophagus, cervix, and
pancreas; and nutritionally-linked cancers such as breast, prostate, and
colon. This research is carried out in five interactive major programs:
Interdisciplinary Studies in Cancer Epidemiology, Tobacco Carcinogenesis,
Chemical Carcinogenesis, Nutritional Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention,
and Cancer Prevention and Control Among Special Populations. Center
activities also include a developing program in Molecular Toxicology as
well as research projects in biochemical pharmacology and nutritional
endocrinology. The research in these programs is supported by nine
Cancer Center Support Grant Shared Resources: Biostatistics and Computer
Facility, Instrument Facility, Research Animal Facility, Histopathology
Facility, In Vitro/Molecular Analysis Facility, Clinical Biochemistry
Facility, Scientific Information and Editorial Facility, Biosafety and
Biohazard Facility, and Organic Synthesis Facility. This Cancer Center
Support Grant thus provides the necessary support for the
interdisciplinary research activities of the American Health Foundation
directed towards the understanding and prevention of cancer.
