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.
NCI held an informational teleconference on RFA-CA-14-012 CISNET (U01).
Date and Time: Monday October 6, 2 – 3 pm eastern time.
In the first portion of the call, Dr. Eric Feuer, NCI project scientist for CISNET, reviewed the funding announcement (please download slides). If you missed the call, you can address questions directly to Dr. Feuer.

CISNET's projects focus on the following five cancer sites:
Models include the impact of screening and the role of risk factors on breast cancer trends.
Models focus on the natural history of the disease and impact of interventions on mortality.
Models focus on the natural history of the disease including precursor states to assess screening and intervention programs.
Models include areas such as tobacco control policies, screening, and genetic susceptibility.
Models focus on prostate cancer progression, detection, and prognosis.
