About the Behavioral Research Program

BRP research priorities address key psychological and behavioral targets across the cancer control continuum, from prevention to end-of-life care. These priorities include basic behavioral and psychological science, interventions in cancer control areas such as tobacco use, diet and energy balance, and sun protection, and processes and effects of communication and informatics.
