This program provides funding to support research in new and innovative cohort studies that identify clinical, lifestyle, genomic, and other factors that affect health outcomes in cancer survivors from diagnosis to the end of life. Outcomes may include morbidity, mortality, quality of life, physical, social, and psychological outcomes.

Research questions of interest include:

  • What are the long-term outcomes for emerging, novel, and combination cancer therapies and how do they differ among populations?
  • How are obesity, physical activity, inflammation-related pathways, and lifestyle factors related to cancer progression, recurrence, subsequent incident cancers, and mortality among understudied adult cancer survivors?
  • How are physical, psychological, social, financial, and quality of life factors associated with survival and/or morbidity across various geographic areas (rural, urban), socioeconomic status, or by race/ethnicity or gender?
  • How do cancer and its treatment alter aging trajectories among adult cancer survivors?
  • What clinical, genomic, and lifestyle factors influence long-term treatment outcomes and adverse events in chronic cancer therapy for survivors with metastatic disease?
