The Behavioral Research Program, within the (NCI) National Cancer Institute’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences, initiates, supports, and evaluates a comprehensive program of research ranging from basic behavioral research to the development, testing, and dissemination of interventions in areas such as tobacco use, screening, dietary behavior, and sun protection. Behavioral research in the context of cancer control is the study of the initiation, conclusion, or maintenance of actions to prevent, detect, or ameliorate the effects of cancer. The Behavioral Research Program at NCI supports scientists who are particularly interested in research tools and funding to elucidate the behavioral and psychosocial antecedents that predict or influence health outcomes.
