Research Questions

Etiologic research and prevention

Incidence of several cancers continues to increase in children and adolescents. Individual studies and international collaborations have made progresses in understanding risk factors of certain childhood cancers, yet gaps remain. The CCDI should also invest in supporting data sharing for etiologic research (population-based and mechanistic studies).

Evidence-based research on modifiable/preventable factors is important to promote prevention efforts with the long-term goal of reducing cancer burden in this young population.
