Discovering the causes of cancer and the means of prevention

Top Scientific Publications from 2016

Posted on January 01, 2017

Every year, DCEG investigators and fellows publish hundreds of papers in the peer-reviewed scientific literature. Our multidisciplinary research covers most types of cancer and many exposures across a diverse range of populations. In addition, the results of this research have informed public policy and played an important role in improving public health, from expanding our knowledge on the relationship between physical activity and cancer risk, identifying novel inherited variants associated with disease, to replicating findings from clinical trials on the efficacy of tamoxifen to reduce contralateral breast cancer.

For DCEG, 2016 was an exceptional year for broad-based, high quality, high impact research. To view our top scientific publications from 2016, check out our list on Storify.
