Division of Epidemiology

In order to develop cancer prevention methods, this division is engaged in research to clarify factors for cancer risks and prevention. Epidemiology is a discipline that investigates the incidence and distribution of diseases in specific human populations to clarify their determinants. Taking advantage of our epidemiological research infrastructure such as multipurpose cohort studies, next-generation multipurpose cohort studies, and studies in cancer screening recipients, we examine the relationship between cancer risk and various factors in our daily living environment using analysis results of biological samples such as blood and urine.
