About the Risk Factor Monitoring & Methods Branch

The mission of the Risk Factor Monitoring & Methods Branch, one of three branches in NCI's Applied Research Program, is to contribute to reducing cancer in the US population by serving as a critical link between etiologic research on cancer risk factors and the translation of such research into targeted and effective interventions for prevention. RFMMB carries out its mission through work in three areas:

  • monitoring cancer-related behaviors and other risk factors among the general population and among selected population subgroups;
  • developing and improving the methods of assessing such factors; and
  • providing data to assist in formulating public policies addressing these factors.
