New Blog Post Invites Comments on Integration of New Technologies Into Cancer Epidemiology

The Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program (EGRP) published commentary in the July 2012 issue of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention (CEBP) that invites the cancer research community and other stakeholders to contribute thoughts through the Cancer Epidemiology Matters Blog about the major areas that cancer epidemiology should address in the next decade to impact public health.

As mentioned in our June 5, 2012 NCI-FRIENDS-OF-EGRP listserv announcement, over the next few months EGRP invites the research community to share its thoughts on several areas, to be discussed further during a December 2012 workshop. Comments provided via the blog will be used to shape the workshop discussion.

This month's topic focuses on the integration of new technologies into cancer epidemiology. We are interested in hearing which technologies you feel are ready for "prime time" in epidemiologic research and for what purpose? What criteria would you use to determine when emerging technologies should be integrated into epidemiologic research?

We appreciate the comments posted in response to our first workshop-related post in June, and continue to invite feedback on the scientific questions cancer epidemiology should address in the next decade. Visit the Cancer Epidemiology Matters Blog to view comments submitted in response to our June post, or add your own.
