Who We Study
DCEG research is carried out among a variety of cohorts, cancer cases, and families.
Comparisons of two groups of people: those with the cancer under study (cases) and a very similar group of people who do not have the cancer (controls).
Studies of defined populations that are observed over time, either prospectively or retrospectively.
Study of cancer risk among families in which disease occurs at a higher rate than in the "general population".
