Public Health Impact of DCEG Research

Over the years, DCEG research findings have had a significant impact on public health – both national and global– by providing key evidence for:

  • Expert panels that develop consensus reports as to whether specific exposures cause cancer;
  • Regulatory agencies and organizations that establish permissible exposure levels and safety guidelines; and
  • Medical communities and professional societies that translate research into clinical practice guidelines.
