Iowa: Receives CDC Grant to Continue Cancer Prevention Research

University of Iowa researchers have been awarded a $1.6 million grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to continue as a collaborating center in the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (CPCRN).

Dr. Natoshia Askelson, assistant professor of community and behavioral health at the University of Iowa College of Public Health, is the principal investigator.

The CPCRN at the University of Iowa is based in the College of Public Health’s Prevention Research Center (PRC) and is focused on disseminating evidence-based interventions to address cancer disparities in rural communities in Iowa and the U.S.

Continued participation in the CPCRN will allow researchers to support three goals over the next five years:

The other participating CPCRN centers are located at Emory University, the New York University School of Medicine, the University of Arizona, the University of South Carolina at Columbia, the University of Colorado-Denver, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and the University of Washington.
