Tools for Researchers

In order to monitor and assess cancer risk factors in the general population and in subpopulations of particular interest, researchers need a variety of tools. They need questionnaires, survey instruments, and assessment instruments. They also need databases that allow them to accurately analyze the data collected. NCI has a long history of developing such tools and supporting related methodologic research. These tools have been used in many types of studies by a broad spectrum of researchers.
