Cancer

Cancer is increasing on a global scale and contributes in a substantial way to the disease burden. It is a major target for those fighting non-communicable disease epidemics. At EPH, different research groups investigate the association between lifestyle (physical activity; obesity), environment (ionizing and non-ionizing radiation), genes, and treatment and the incidence, progression, and mortality of cancers. We also actively engage in cancer monitoring and implementing relevant infrastructure and legal regulations.
