Methods and Technologies
The Methods and Technologies Branch in NCI’s Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program supports innovative cancer epidemiology research, including development and adaptation of laboratory and technical approaches for large studies in human populations.
Learn more about MTB’s interests in the following areas, relevant funding opportunity announcements, related EGRP events, and staff contacts.
EGRP is interested in supporting research that improves understanding of how biomarkers can be used in early detection/screening of cancer.
Epigenomics and Epigenetics
EGRP is interested in supporting research to increase understanding of processes that regulate how and when certain genes are turned on and off may be deregulated in cancer.
Staff in EGRP partner with others at NCI and NIH to foster research to better understand the causes of health disparities and develop interventions to reduce differences in the incidence, prevalence, mortality, and burden of cancer and related adverse health conditions that exist among specific population groups in the United States.
EGRP partners with others at NCI and NIH to foster investigator-initiated research to better understand the role of infectious agents in cancer.
