I have heard that there is a correlation between life-expectancy and levels of D-vitamin. Is there a correlation between D-vitamin and cancer? Are certain types of cancer more rare among people that has optimal levels of D-vitamin?

Cancer Research Ideas - Other Exceptional Opportunities (Archived)
Not sure where to enter your idea? Use this space for other ideas you may have that could provide exceptional opportunity for progress, including ways to improve the cancer research process, encourage collaborations, and achieve other goals important to advancing progress against cancer.
The submission period for Other Exceptional Opportunities 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.
I have heard that color/tattoo pigment can be seen in the bonemarrow if a person recently has made a tattoo. What are the consequenses of this on cells in the bonemarrow, lymfnodes, spleen, liver and in the skin/dermis?
Treating cancer calls for a critical balance between the efficacy of the drugs and their side effects from toxicity, which is patient-specific. Implementing requires quantitative understanding through mathematical models of patient background.
To help ensure the highest level of care is provided, and to further reduce cost, CSC requests that the NCI make an investment to research psychosocial and behavioral health components affecting cancer patients.
Over 80% of cancer clinical trials are null or negative despite promising preclinical results. We are rushing to the clinic without doing the due diligence of fine-tuning the treatment strategy preclinically,
80% of cancer patients are treated in community hospitals and clinics. We need a centralized open-source, open-access biorepository managed by brokers with no vested interests other than accelerating the search for cures to help patients today.
Current cohorts miss critical windows of exposure for understanding cancer development. New cohorts which cover the life course are needed to achieve precision cancer prevention.
Independent science and the US NTP study have concluded that non-ionizing radiation is indeed causing cancer. Considering wireless radiation surrounds all Americans daily we must tackle this serious issue now with a prevention program.
In a Phase II trial, Iloprost reduced bronchial epithelial dysplasia. We will conduct a phase IIb/III lung cancer chemoprevention trial with iloprost using the non-invasive LuCED test, instead of bronchoscopy, to facilitate trial recruitment.
Conduct a needs assessment of Veteran cancer survivors in order to better define quality survivorship care for this population and other low health literacy populations.
Numerous projects, including the original moonshot and cancer drug development, demonstrate that interdisciplinary teams working towards a common goal can produce important results that complement those results that individuals produce.
Cancer care costs are rapidly increasing and have negative financial consequences on the patient and economy. Giving physicians tools to screen patients for financial toxicity can help protect patients from financial burdens.
Insurance coverage should be mandated to provide coverage for cancer diagnosis and treatment. High out-of-pocket costs, coverage delay and denial all add to the stress of a cancer diagnosis.
Survivorship has become a distinct phase of cancer research. With one-third of the American population facing a cancer diagnosis at some point in their lives, the long-term care of cancer survivors requires more focused attention.
