Each of the approximately 90 employees working at CPIC takes pride in working for an organization that is dedicated to preventing cancer through population-based research and cancer education. CPIC is an established, nationally recognized leader in understanding who gets cancer and why, and how to improve the quality of life for individuals living with cancer. At CPIC, employees share in the rewards of working for an organization that is finding answers to questions about cancer and making a difference for this and future generations.
