Cancer Epidemiology Division

The Cancer Epidemiology Division (CED) conducts a broad range of research aimed at expanding our understanding of the factors that contribute to or protect against the development of cancer, or survival following a cancer diagnosis.

CED comprises a multidisciplinary team of epidemiologists, dieticians, statisticians, data managers and support staff, committed to understanding how to improve our efforts at cancer control.
