Funding Opportunities

The Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences funds a large portfolio of grants and contracts. The portfolio currently includes over 900 grants valued at almost $400 million. The breadth of research supported by DCCPS includes surveillance, epidemiology, health services, behavioral science and cancer survivorship. The Division also plays a central role within the federal government as a source of expertise and evidence on issues such as quality of cancer care, the economic burden of cancer, geographic information systems, statistical methods, communication science, tobacco control, and the translation of research into practice.
