From Our Researchers
The American Cancer Society employs a staff of full-time researchers who relentlessly pursue the answers that help us understand how to prevent, detect, and treat cancer, including colorectal cancer. They investigate associations between lifestyle and colon/rectal cancer using data from the ongoing Cancer Prevention Study II (CPS-II), which the Society began in 1982. They are also conducting a new multi-year cancer prevention study, CPS-III.
