The Applied Research Program (ARP) supports research grants that examine how and why
cancer care and control activities in the United States influence patterns of care and
trends in cancer incidence, morbidity, mortality, and survival.
Here we present selected highlights of the research conducted by ARP grantees. In some
cases, we describe research that is well underway and has promising results; in others, we
describe a recently awarded grant that has proposed an innovative approach to a difficult
problem. This page will be periodically updated with new stories.
