Who We Study
DCEG research is carried out among a variety of cohorts, cancer cases, and families.
Cases and Controls
DCEG investigators have collaborated with researchers around the globe to develop incredibly rich studies of special populations. Below are a sample of these studies:
- AsiaLymph Study
- Environment And Genetics in Lung cancer Etiology
- Epidemiology of Burkitt Lymphoma in East African Children and Minors (EMBLEM)
- Nasopharyngeal Case-Control Study
- NCI-SEER Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) Case-Control Study
- New England Bladder Cancer Study
- Testicular Cancer among Military Servicemen: the STEED Study
- Transplant Cancer Match Study
The DCEG Cancer Survivorship Research Unit seeks to improve the clinical care and quality of life of cancer survivors by increasing understanding of the adverse effects of treatment through trans-disciplinary epidemiological and genetics studies.
Cohort studies are a powerful tool to evaluate defined populations over time, either prospectively or retrospectively.
DCEG has a long history of investigation of cancer-prone families. Our research on hereditary syndromes and cancer has made a significant impact on numerous types of cancer, with implications for sporadic disease as well.
