About DCCPS

In 1997, NCI established DCCPS to enhance its ability to alleviate the burden of cancer through cancer control research. This research generates basic knowledge about how to monitor and change individual and collective behavior, and to ensure that knowledge is translated into practice and policy rapidly, effectively, and efficiently.
