Welcome to the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network Newsletter, Fall 2019


The Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (CPCRN) Coordinating Center is pleased to share the Fall 2019 Edition of the CPCRN newsletter. Distributed quarterly, this newsletter highlights the work and accomplishments of network investigators, federal agency partners, and affiliates, as well as upcoming opportunities and events, with an emphasis on cancer prevention and control.  

The CPCRN 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. The CPCRN is a thematic research network of the Prevention Research Centers (PRCs), which is CDC’s flagship program for preventing and controlling chronic diseases. Currently-funded CPCRN centers are located at the Colorado School of Public Health, Emory University, New York University School of Medicine-CUNY, University of North Carolina, University of Arizona, University of Iowa, University of South Carolina, and University of Washington. 
  NEWS HIGHLIGHTS
Eight Centers Funded by the CDC to Continue the Work of the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network Through 2024
In September 2019, eight centers were awarded funding from the CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control to collaborate in the 2019-2024 cycle of the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (CPCRN5). CPCRN welcomes two new centers from New York University School of Medicine-CUNY and University of Arizona along with refunded centers from the Colorado School of Public Health and Emory University and continuing centers from the University of North Carolina, University of Iowa, University of South Carolina, and University of Washington. The University of North Carolina will continue to serve as the CPCRN Coordinating Center.  
 
Each center proposes to complete a core center project that will study the implementation of cancer control interventions directed at one or more levels of the healthcare context and measure effects of the intervention on their target population. Furthermore, centers will contribute to cross-center projects to extend the knowledge base of processes that facilitate the translation of evidence into practice, develop measures and outcomes for evidence-based cancer prevention and control activities, and establish partnerships with major healthcare systems and other sectors. The CPCRN also contributes to the field of implementation science from primary prevention and early detection through to cancer survivorship.

CPCRN has made substantial impact in both cancer prevention and control research and dissemination and implementation science in the recently completed 2014-2019 funding cycle and across its 17-year history. CPCRN5 centers will build upon this important work to innovate, develop, implement, and evaluate evidence-based approaches to cancer prevention and control with their local, state, and national partners. More information on the Network centers can be found here.
The 12th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health will include 52 presentations featuring the work of 42 CPCRN investigators. Guided by the theme Raising the Bar on the Rigor, Relevance, and Rapidity of Dissemination and Implementation Science, CPCRN presenters will help map the way forward for improvements in the development, execution, and application of D&I science. Register online or onsite through December 6th.

Starting in December, we'll highlight articles from the upcoming CPCRN Supplement in Preventive Medicine themed around Implementation Science and Population Approaches to Improve Equity in Cancer Prevention and Control.
CPCRN-RELATED PRESENTATIONS

Principal Investigator Daniela Friedman (left) and Project Director Sam Noblet (right) of the University of South Carolina CPCRN collaborating center will be presenting at the 3rd Annual South Carolina Primary Health Care Association's (SCPHCA) 2019 Service, Engage & Extend, and Advocate (SEA) Retreat. Their presentation, Health Literacy Matters: Strategies for Improving Patient Outcomes and the Patient-Provider Encounter, will take place on Saturday, December 7, 2019. See the event website for more details.
UPCOMING EVENTS
The Case Comprehensive Cancer Center Office of Cancer Disparities Research will present the 4th Annual Cancer Disparities Symposium: Cultivating Science and Community Engagement to Address Cancer Health Disparities on Friday, March 6, 2020 at the Tinkham Veale University Center, CWRU campus. The symposium will feature keynote presentations by renowned disparities researchers and community leaders, a poster session highlighting academic research and community programs, a networking session, and an interactive panel discussion. Researchers and organizations are invited to submit abstracts for oral presentations by Tuesday, December 3, 2019, and registration is now open.
Hosted by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS), the Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer (TIDIRC) Facilitated Course provides participants with a thorough grounding in conducting dissemination and implementation (D&I) research with a specific focus on cancer across the cancer control continuum. The institute utilizes a combination of online coursework (six modules with related assignments), and a 2-day in-person training. The 2020 application will close January 15, 2020 at 12 PM ET.    
INVESTIGATOR UPDATES
Principal Investigator Daniela Friedman (left) and Co-Investigator Heather Brandt (right) of the University of South Carolina CPCRN collaborating center were one of three projects awarded funding from the Duke Endowment, for a total of $1.8 million in awards. Their project, Improving Health Literacy, will focus on enhancing quality of care through improved health literacy across South Carolina.
FUNDING ANNOUNCEMENTS
NIH Funding Opportunities
Notice of Special Interest: Administrative Supplements to NIH-funded T32 and TL1 Training Grants to Better Integrate Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSS) with other Health-Related Sciences
The Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) is interested in supporting the integration of health-related behavioral and social sciences with other biomedical methodological and scientific disciplines (e.g., genetics, immunology, metabolomics, molecular biology, microbiome, biochemistry, or physiological sciences). 
Linking the Provider Recommendation to Adolescent HPV Vaccine Uptake
This FOA encourages research on how the healthcare delivery system enhances or inhibits the effectiveness of a provider's recommendation of the adolescent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. Characteristics of the provider, parent/patient, and clinical setting, can all affect whether a provider makes a recommendation, and whether that recommendation results in uptake of the HPV vaccine. This research requires expertise in cancer prevention, adult and childhood behavior, immunization promotion, and healthcare delivery. 
JOB POSTINGS
The Behavioral Research Program (BRP) within the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences invites letters of interest from researchers with expertise in cancer survivorship or cancer communication to serve as Program Directors/Health Scientist Administrators.  
The Department of Health Services at the University of Washington seeks to fill one or two full-time faculty positions with a focus on Population Health Research as an Assistant Professor on a 12-month service period, with an anticipated start date of fall 2020.
The Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) is seeking a professional to serve as an Epidemiologist to assist with the implementation of key components of the ODP Strategic Plan. The incumbent will utilize his/her expertise to advance Strategic Priority III which is focused on promoting the use of the best available methods in prevention research and supporting the development of better methods.
 
The ODP is seeking a professional to serve as a Senior Advisor for Disease Prevention and assist with the implementation of scientific priorities of the office.
