The main focus of the Cancer Prevention Institute of California (CPIC) has been the cancer prevention research and reducing its effect where it cannot be prevented. It was established as Northern California Cancer Program in 1974 in Fremont, California and in 2010, the name was changed to Cancer Prevention Institute of California (CPIC) which reflects its objective of preventing cancer before its occurrence. Its highly skilled research group includes eighteen renowned scientists and their teams who mainly focus on exploring the causes of cancer, ways of prevention and early detection of cancer, examining demographic based disparities for occurrence of cancer, and creating awareness among public about cancer. CPIC’s research findings are published in peer-reviewed scientific journals thereby disseminates its knowledge among other scientists and public health agencies. CPIC manages Greater Bay Area Cancer Registry which receives data from various cancer centers across the region. The data helps to study area wise variations in occurrence of cancer and to identify areas that are more prone to cancer.
The following is the list of articles by scholars from Cancer Prevention Institute of California that are published in OMICS International journals.
