The Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (CPCRN) is a national network of academic, public health, and community partners who work together to reduce the burden of cancer, especially among those disproportionately affected. Its members conduct community-based participatory cancer research across its eight network centers, crossing academic affiliations and geographic boundaries.  The CPCRN is a thematic research network of the Prevention Research Centers (PRCs), which are CDC’s flagship program for preventing and controlling chronic diseases.

The CPCRN represents a collaboration of cancer divisions from two federal agencies: The Division of Cancer Prevention and Control  of the CDC‘s National Center of Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, and the Division of Cancer Control & Population Sciences of the National Cancer Institute.

The Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network is supported by Cooperative Agreement Number 3 U48 DP005017-01S8 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Prevention Research Centers Program and the National Cancer Institute.

CPCRN Members

Currently the CPCRN is comprised of eight funded research institutions and one funded coordinating center.  For more information about these centers, click here.
