The research group for descriptive epidemiology, genetics, and prevention of cancer is a multidisciplinary group that includes epidemiologists, statisticians, oncologists, radiotherapists, a physiotherapist, a dermatologist; a biologist, a nurse, and medical documentalists, biologist. The main focus of the group is cancer epidemiology (descriptive and analytical), cancer prevention, and genetics.

Main lines of research

Descriptive and analytical epidemiology of cancer.

Strategic objectives
  1. Descriptive and analytical epidemiology of cancer
  • Registering cancer based on population for the province of Girona (with national and international collaborations).
    • Incidence and populational prevalence of cancer, projections of the incidence of cancer
    • Populational survival of cancer (international collaborations: EUROCARE and CONCORD studies).
  • Study of genetic and molecular factors in the prognosis of breast cancer and haematological tumours.
  • Study of genetic and environmental risk factors in breast cancer and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia.
  1. Cancer prevention
  • Evaluation of the organized breast cancer screening program
  • Benefits and adverse effects of breast cancer detection: Method to improve the measurement of early detection results.
  • Evaluation of the interval rate of cancer and its determining factors in the early detection program of breast cancer in the Girona health region.
  • Evaluation of the timely detection program for cervical cancer.
  • Determination of the sensitivity and specificity of cervical cytology.
  • Evaluation of the effectiveness of vaccination against the human papilloma virus.
  1. Genetics (The genetic epidemiology of cancer)
  • Evaluation of the risk of developing cancer.
  • Study of genetic risk factors for cancer.
  • Genetic susceptibility to cancer.
