A consortium of NCI-sponsored investigators that use statistical modeling to improve our understanding of cancer control interventions and their effects on cancer incidence and mortality.
Projections of cancer prevalence and costs of cancer care through the year 2020.
A central source of information about GIS and related resources for use by the public, cancer researchers, and the GIS Special Interest Group.
Data, statistics, and tools to support research on the differential burden of cancer among Americans.
NCI supports several projects among Native-American populations, largely in collaboration with its Network for Cancer Control Research Among American Indian/Alaska Natives Populations.
Natural Language Processing (NLP)
SRP has initiated pilot studies to evaluate a variety of Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools for extraction of information from pathology reports and other clinical documents. These pilots are part of broader goals to enhance cancer surveillance through NLP facilitated case abstraction, to conduct large scale quality assessments of SEER data, and to acquire more detailed diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes data for research.
State, county, and health service area estimates for smoking prevalence, mammography use, and Pap test use, based on two national surveys.
Characterizes the cancer burden in a standardized manner to motivate action, integrate surveillance into cancer control planning, characterize areas and demographic groups, and expose health disparities.
Genetic simulation resources, NIH-supported grants, and other resources for statistical genetics research.
Collaboration and support for the design and analysis of sample surveys and the development of new methods.
