InCHIP hosts the Cancer Research Interest Group (Cancer RIG) for affiliate researchers interested in biopsychosocial issues across the entire cancer control continuum of prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, and end-of life. The mission of the Cancer RIG is to increase high quality, impactful cancer control research across the UConn campuses. The Cancer RIG aims to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and increase opportunities for obtaining external grant funding. The group includes members from a range of departments and schools across UConn, as well as from other universities, local healthcare facilities, and community organizations.
The Cancer RIG meets periodically throughout the year and co-sponsors cancer-related talks as part of the InCHIP Lecture Series. In addition, it organizes and sponsors various events and activities dedicated to achieving its mission.
