Implementation Sciences

Cancer Research Ideas - Implementation Sciences (Archived)

Studying the impact of cancer on large populations can provide important information that influences practices, policies, and programs that directly affect the health of millions of people each year. To improve cancer outcomes, it is essential to identify and test methods for more effectively disseminating information about new approaches for cancer prevention, risk assessment, screening, prognosis, treatment, and survivorship. Interventions must fit within real-world public health and clinical settings and be accessible and understandable to practitioners and the public.

The submission period for Implementation Sciences ideas ended on July 1. However, we encourage you to sign up for regular e-mail updates about the National Cancer Moonshot Initiative at the Cancer Moonshot Milestones web page.
