Cancer Control and Population Sciences

Elizabeth Brown, Ph.D, M.P.H. – Co-Leader

Karen Meneses, Ph.D., R.N., FAAN – Co-Leader


The Cancer Control & Population Science (CCPS) Program at the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center represents multidisciplinary investigators with broad expertise in cancer health disparities, molecular epidemiology, behavioral and health outcomes, nutrition and obesity, and cancer survivorship research. The overall goals of the program are to develop and implement risk-reduction interventions in high-risk vulnerable populations and to close the gap in cancer health disparities. The CCPS Program is distinguished by an outstanding institutional and community-based infrastructure that provides unique opportunity for scientists across the Cancer Center to conduct community-based participatory research and large population-based clinical trials and to increase cancer awareness and effect behavior change in targeted underserved populations. The CCPS has led the effort for enhanced training of minority scientists addressing cancer health disparities and represents faculty from 14 departments with $15.6 million in annual direct research support.
