The Boston Cancer Policy Institute has two divisions: research division and governance division. The research division conducts socials science research on organizational and institutional mechanisms that will contribute to the sound  translation of discoveries. The governance division conducts internal reviews on whether research programs/ projects are performed with integrity, results are disseminated properly, and funds are used adequately. In this manner, we will realize highly qualified advanced studies, contribute to disciplinary knowledge/ scholarly literature, while assuring research integrity.
