Our Research

We are dedicated to finding the knowledge needed to get in front of cancer. The exceptional work of our research move us closer to achieving this goal every day.
CPIC scientists confront cancer in a number of different ways: 

  • Tracking a large number of healthy people to document their lifestyles and experiences before cancer ever happens.
  • Recruiting patients diagnosed with cancer to examine the causes of cancer, and differences in outcomes and survivorship.
  • Collecting, enhancing and analyzing key cancer information through the Greater Bay Area Cancer Registry.
  • Partnering with leading national and international cancer organizations.
