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.
