Evaluating Methodologic Issues

Methodologic research involves developing and improving the methods of assessing factors related to cancer risk factors, screening, diagnosis, treatment, survival, and progression of disease following cancer. Methodologic issues cover statistical questions, health and risk assessment, factors associated with obtaining and using biospecimens, use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and factors influencing cancer incidence.
