About the Statistical Research & Applications Branch:

Mission of the Statistical Research and Applications Branch

The Statistical Research and Applications Branch (SRAB) is one of two branches in NCI's Surveillance Research Program. The attached organization chart shows SRAB's position within the NCI. SRAB conducts and supports statistical research, modeling, and collaboration related to the cancer surveillance and cancer control missions of the NCI. Essential corollaries to the development of cancer surveillance databases and cancer control interventions are the statistical analyses and mathematical modeling that contribute insight into the interpretation of these data.

Research within SRAB is targeted at improving and developing statistical methods and models for use in the analysis and presentation of population-based cancer statistics, as well as in the broader areas of cancer surveillance and cancer control research. SRAB promotes and facilitates the use of these methods and models at NCI, in other federal agencies, as well as throughout the extramural research community. Research under the aegis of SRAB moves forward through sponsorship of extramural research activities, support for the development of software, and in-house analytic activity.
