  • Comparative effectiveness of emerging cancer screening and treatment technologies
  • Health care practice variation and health care reform studies that characterize how changing policies are affecting cancer care and outcomes
  • Effective communication of the benefits and harms of cancer screening and treatments to foster informed choice through effective decision support.
  • Geospatial research, addressing how local geography and the built environment affect cancer-causing behaviors, care access, and cancer outcomes (emerging theme).
  • Tobacco regulatory research, to assist the Food and Drug Administration in tobacco industry regulation (emerging theme).
