  The Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences both generates new knowledge and seeks to ensure that the products of cancer control research are effectively applied in all segments of the population. Two decades of treatment research to prevent PCWG has yielded modest success at best. The importance of identifying efficacious treatments for the prevention of PCWG is highlighted by research showing that 70 percent of treatment- seeking smokers are overweight or obese; they gain the most weight upon quitting smoking, and are least accepting. PROJECT SUMMARY Though cancer diagnosis and treatment remain national health priorities, recent gains in cancer care have not been deployed to the benefit of U.S. populations equally, particularly for cancers for which surgery is a primary component of treatment. Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine have collaborated with Southern Illinois Healthcare, a rural not-for-profit health system, since to identify cancer prevention and control priorities and reduce disparities.

Attendees apply the knowledge gained to disease prevention and management, and development of innovative research designs, effective interventions and strategies, and evidence-based policies. SBM meetings feature high-impact plenary speakers who present topics such as “Social Divides and Health Divides” (Sandro Galea, MD, MPH, DrPH, ). Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences: Programs and Resources Robert T. Croyle, Ph.D. Director, DCCPS J   DCCPS was organized in to lead NCI’s efforts in cancer control research. Since that time, the division has grown and evolved to become a stronghold of NCI’s campaign to eliminate suffering and death from cancer. The division’s achievements are made possible through the dedication and creativity of its talented and engaged professionals. Rebecca Ferrer, Ph.D., is a Health Scientist/Program Director at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS), Behavioral Research Program (BRP), Basic Biobehavioral and Psychological Sciences Branch (BBPSB).

The specific aim of CCPS is to reduce the cancer burden in the Duke Cancer Institute (DCI)'s catchment area. Of particular note are a large number of investigative leaders who are addressing cancer health disparities and include an international consortium on ovarian cancer in women of African descent, cancer-related exercise and obesity research, tobacco control, palliative care, and outcomes.

The Healthcare Delivery Research Program (HDRP) sits within NCI’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) and was created in January to respond to the need for empirical evidence to address challenges in cancer care. The name “Healthcare. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program provides information on cancer statistics in an effort to reduce the cancer burden among the U.S. population. SEER is supported by the Surveillance Research Program (SRP) in NCI's Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences .
