Our Research

COPPER’s research portfolio focuses on generating knowledge that informs efforts to improve cancer care and outcomes, for all communities and populations. Cancer screening, treatment, and risk stratification options have expanded substantially in recent years. As clinicians and policy makers strive to implement and evaluate these newer modalities in an equitable and efficient manner, they face several critical knowledge gaps. COPPER investigators address these gaps, applying an equity lens as they generate new evidence that can inform decision-making, assess innovations in cancer care delivery, evaluate real-world effectiveness if different care strategies, improve patient-centered decision making, and further our understanding of key leverage points for addressing cancer disparities.
