AACR was founded to facilitate communication and dissemination of knowledge; to foster research, public education and science education in cancer and related biomedical sciences; and to advance the understanding of cancer etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment throughout the world.
The ACS is a nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.
ASCO is an international organization representing physicians and other health care professionals who treat people with cancer. Their site includes abstracts of their annual meetings from 2009 to the present.
A collaboration between the Center for Occupational and Environmental Health and the Natural Resources Defense Council. The project's expert panel is charged with recommending the chemical screening criteria relevant to breast cancer and identifying the communication strategies that will help businesses, consumers and policy makers reduce chemical hazards.
Patient information on cancer. Each type of cancer has an overview, risk factors, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, after treatment, side effects of cancer and cancer treatment, questions to ask the doctor, and other organizations providing patient information on the specific cancer.
The center runs a Information and Referral Hotline, maintains a Peer Referral Network, and provides a Resource Library for women. Links are provided to significant cancer sites as well as a variety of other sites (e.g. complementary medicine and environment).
Includes datasets from completed occupational epidemiology studies and an interactive risk attributable program. Also available are epidemiological software programs, information on fellowships and research activities, and the full-text of journal articles written by DCEG researchers.
Includes cancer education and training tools for health professionals, such as a lesson on how to use evidence-based programs to plan a health education program, webinars on research to practice, and tutorials on using State Cancer Profiles and NHANES, among many others.
The mission of the NCI’s Office of Cancer Genomics (OCG) is to enhance the understanding of the molecular mechanisms of cancer, advance and accelerate genomics science and technology development, and efficiently translate the genomics data to improve cancer prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment.
An online community of practice that links cancer control practitioners and researchers and provides opportunities for discussion, learning, and enhanced collaboration on moving research into practice.
