Description

 

There is a growing recognition that a person’s lifetime residential history should be routinely incorporated into cancer research because it encapsulates the person’s multiple interactions with social and physical environment that may have lasting health impact as demonstrated in focused studies. Some of the sample research areas where having individual residential history is important include: environmental exposure studies, health disparities research, health services delivery, cancer surveillance, cancer survival, etc. One of the principal reasons why residential history has been largely ignored in epidemiological studies is that these data have been difficult and expensive to obtain. The recent increase in awareness of commercially available residential history data presents an opportunity to capitalize on the role of residential history in the context of cancer research and encourage the research community to generate new knowledge about the interactions between place and cancer over time.

The goals of this panel session are to: (1) bring together the recent innovative work involving individual residential histories in cancer research; (2) present the latest funding opportunities at NCI for research addressing the role of residential histories in cancer etiology, prevention, and outcomes; and (3) explain NCI’s funding process and mechanisms in support of substantive investigation of this scientific topic.
