Collaborative projects

Collaboration is basic to the Cancer Epidemiology Centre's philosophy and essential to achieving its aims. It's the vehicle for new initiatives, both in scientific and infrastructure support, by which we'll be able to acquire new knowledge for cancer control.

Collaboration is also the best way to help researchers working on other chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

If you're a researcher interested in using CEC resources for collaboration, see the PEDIGREE website for more information.
