Cancer Outcomes, Public Policy, and Effectiveness Research (COPPER) Center

The mission of the Yale Cancer Outcomes, Public Policy, and Effectiveness Research Center (COPPER) Center is to improve cancer care and to decrease the burden of cancer on individual patients as well as society. The Yale Department of Therapeutic Radiology is very involved in the Yale COPPER Center, pursuing in particular research that investigates the comparative effectiveness and patterns of care of new radiation technologies. Project funding currently comes from the National Institutes of Health, Yale Cancer Center, and private foundations (American Cancer Society, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, American Heart Association).
