Who We Are

DCCPS was organized in 1997 to lead NCI’s efforts in cancer control research. Since that time, the division has grown and evolved to become a stronghold of NCI’s campaign to eliminate suffering and death from cancer. The division’s achievements are made possible through the dedication and creativity of its talented and engaged professionals. By using knowledge gained from multiple disciplines and understanding how cancer impacts different populations in the United States, DCCPS strives to overcome cancer and improve quality of life for cancer survivors. This work is achieved through the support of dedicated staff as well as a diverse range of fellows, interns, and contractors.
