The Applied Research Program supports several activities relevant to the economics of cancer. These include developing data resources and methods to produce estimates of the economic burden of cancer, developing detailed estimates of and determinants of the cost of cancer prevention, screening, treatment and follow-up services, and estimating the costs of cancer treatment for patients in clinical trials.
