Overview

The Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program (EGRP) is supporting a growing number of national and international research consortia focusing on intradisciplinary and translational research on common and rare cancers. Cohort, case-control, and familial studies are included.

Support for emerging and established consortia is provided in many ways, such as through meeting support, grants, identification of partners with similar research interests, and advice on policies and processes that have proven successful with other consortia. Assistance is available for all stages of consortia development.
