About the course
Cancer is the second most common non-communicable disease in India with alarming increases being predicted in the coming years due to increases in life expectancy as well as risk factors. In the absence of any population based methods for early detection or screening, cancer in India presents mostly at a later stage when associated mortality and morbidity are very high. A large number of these cancers are preventable with tobacco alone responsible for almost 40% of all cancers. Also, while such a large number of cancer patients present at late stage there is a stark lack of knowledge and resources for palliative care for cancer patients. Given this context, there are very few formal courses that provide structured knowledge about cancer and cancer research in the Indian context. In order to bridge this lacuna is knowledge and approach towards cancer research we are now offering a workshop on cancer research and control which addresses topics listed below.

This workshop will enable the participants to learn skills related to statistical analysis and multivariate regression modeling and, designing and conducting common studies used in cancer epidemiology.
