Since the UWCCC established the CPC Program over 40 years ago, the research priorities within the Program have evolved to meet the changing profile of cancer in the community and the evolving spectrum of cancer control activities to more recently include extended survival and end-of-life.  The UWCCC supports research in the CPC Program by providing concrete opportunities for basic, clinical, and population health researchers to jointly pursue scientific questions.

At UWCCC, the translation of laboratory discovery to clinical and population application is facilitated by multidisciplinary Disease Oriented Teams DOTs). These working groups offer a venue for laboratory, clinical and population researchers to interact and develop cross-disciplinary projects.  DOTs are embedded within UWCCC Scientific Programs, with one organized within the CPC Program - Palliative Medicine, led by Drs. James Cleary and Toby Campbell.
