CISNET Cancer Sites

CISNET'S projects focus on the following cancer sites:

Bladder Cancer (Incubator site)
Models focus on the natural course of the disease and will address questions on its prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance.

Breast Cancer
Models focus on critical early detection and clinical management issues, and are being used to evaluate mortality outcomes, harms and costs of rapidly evolving cancer control paradigms.

Cervical Cancer
Models focus on human papillomavirus (HPV) and the natural history of the disease, the impact of screening, the comparative effectiveness of HPV vaccination and screening strategies, and approaches to reduce cervical cancer disparities.

Colorectal Cancer
Models focus on the natural history of the disease and the impact of interventions, including targeted screening, on mortality.

Esophageal Cancer (funded through 2022)
Models focus on evaluating the potential of new screening technologies, prevention methods, genomic and other biomarkers, and clinical prediction tools.

Gastric Cancer (Incubator site)
Models are being used to produce innovative changes to gastric cancer care through a disparities oriented modeling approach focused on the most vulnerable, high-risk populations that bear the greatest gastric cancer burden.

Lung Cancer
Models focus on tobacco control policies, computed tomography (CT) screening, targeted therapies and immunotherapies, and investigation of the synergistic impacts of those strategies.

Multiple Myeloma (Incubator site)
Models focus on the natural history of the disease and the impact of novel strategies in preventing and treating multiple myeloma, with the goals of reducing its burden and mitigating disparities.

Prostate Cancer
Models focus on investigating risk-based screening and treatment strategies and approaches for reducing racial disparities.

Uterine Cancer (Incubator site)
Models are being used to inform strategies for reducing uterine cancer incidence and mortality by improving prevention, screening, and treatment.
