Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network

Modeling to guide public health research and priorities

Learn more about Colorectal Cancer Mortality Projections

CISNET is a consortium of NCI-sponsored investigators that use statistical modeling to improve our understanding of cancer control interventions in prevention, screening, and treatment and their effects on population trends in incidence and mortality. These models can be used to guide public health research and priorities.

CISNET's projects focus on the following five cancer sites:

Breast Cancer

Models include the impact of screening and the role of risk factors on breast cancer trends.

Colorectal Cancer

Models focus on the natural history of the disease and impact of interventions on mortality.

Esophageal Cancer

Models focus on the natural history of the disease including precursor states to assess screening and intervention programs.

Lung Cancer

Models include areas such as tobacco control policies, screening, and genetic susceptibility.

Prostate Cancer

Models focus on prostate cancer progression, detection, and prognosis.
