At ACS since 2001
As a cancer registrar, Den E, BA, CTR, is a data information specialist within the Study Management team in Population Science.
Researchers in Population Science rely on her to have the data they need for research projects involving American Cancer Society Cancer Prevention Studies (CPS). Her work specifically involves identifying cancer cases in the participants of CPS-II and CPS-3, ensuring data completeness, and making sure data are in compliance with standards.
Research Focus and Accomplishments
I find my work as a cancer registrar meaningful. The data I help collect helps with cancer control, epidemiological research, public health planning, and ultimately the quality and improvement of patient care.
For the past 20 years, I have seen the specific needs and demands of researchers affect the type of data that’s collected. It’s also the thriving research community, that leads to new data standards.
Part of the reason I’m essential to my group is because I provide the historical knowledge base on existing data items as well as new ones. One thing’s for sure—research is not stagnant.
