Cancer and Science Policy Research for Public Interest

The Boston Cancer Policy Institute has two organizational units: a research division and board of directors/ advisory board. The research division conducts socials science research on organizational mechanisms and research policies that will contribute to the sound  translation of discoveries. As the research results are submitted to scholarly peer-reviewed journals and conferences, the research quality and integrity are assured in the process. The boards conducts internal reviews on the consistency of research programs and public interests, dissemination, and the use of funds. In this manner, we will realize highly qualified advanced studies for public interests, contribute to disciplinary knowledge and scholarly literature, while assuring research integrity.
