We offer an exceptional environment for students and health professionals to pursue educational opportunities in applied cancer control research. The demand for applied cancer control research is increasing across Canada and around the world, but the supply of researchers in this area is not increasing at the same rate. Decision makers and policy makers – who often have limited training in applied research methods – are increasingly using evidence from applied cancer control disciplines to make recommendations and create policy.
Our capacity building objective is two-fold: to train researchers in the methods of, and to educate decision makers in use of health economics, services, policy and ethics research related to cancer control.
Our capacity building activities
