In May 2014, NCI’s Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) hosted Cancer Epidemiology: From Pedigrees to Populations, a scientific symposium honoring 50 years of visionary leadership by Dr. Joseph F. Fraumeni, Jr., the founding Director of DCEG. The conference provided an opportunity for scientific exchange by the leading experts in cancer epidemiology. Speakers highlighted critical findings made over the past 50 years, as well as opportunities for future research that have the potential to significantly advance our understanding of the causes of cancer.
