Trans-Divisional Research Program

The Trans-Divisional Research Program (TDRP) conducts and facilitates trans-Divisional research in cancer epidemiology, genetics and prevention across DCEG. TDRP accomplishes its mission by:

  • Identifying new trans-Divisional research opportunities and directions for the Division
  • Coordinating Connect for Cancer Prevention, a new prospective study for the Division and broader scientific community
  • Building collaborative data platforms and tools for large-scale epidemiological research, following Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable (FAIR) principles
  • Coordinating task forces in order to facilitate implementation of the DCEG strategic plan
  • Supporting working groups to facilitate trans-Divisional research
