SC Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network

The Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network 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 and partner-engaged cancer research across its eight network centers, crossing academic affiliations and geographic boundaries. The UofSC Prevention Research Center hosts one of these eight centers, the South Carolina Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (SC-CPCRN). The SC-CPCRN also participated during the previous two cycles of the CPCRN (2009-2019).

Translating Research to Reality

Our goal at the South Carolina Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (SC-CPCRN) is to reduce cancer-related health disparities among disenfranchised and medically underserved populations by advancing dissemination and implementation (D&I) science, increasing the cancer prevention and control evidence base across South Carolina, and translating effective multi-level, community-clinical interventions into practice both in South Carolina and nationally.

We are committed to: (1) disseminating, implementing, and evaluating efficacious, multi-level, and multi-site public health, cancer control interventions to address cancer-related health disparities; (2) engaging community and clinical partners in research, training, and technical assistance to strengthen D&I science for cancer control in high-risk populations in SC and nationally, and translate effective community-based intervention for cancer control in practice; and, (3) increasing the capacity of community and clinical partners in the D&I of evidence-based cancer prevention and control strategies that are effective in reaching underserved, minority, and rural populations.


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
