The new Zhu Family Center for Global Cancer Prevention at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health is an interdisciplinary center dedicated to prevention education and research across the cancer continuum. The Center focuses on primary prevention (including lifestyle and behavior modifications), secondary prevention (including screening and early detection), and tertiary prevention (including cancer survivorship and disease monitoring).

Our mission is to support groundbreaking research that develops and implements novel methods, technologies, and tools to further the translation of this work into clinical and public health practice. By forming cross- collaborative partnerships among researchers, physicians, thought leaders, pharma, academic collaborators, philanthropists, technology companies, and innovators, we strive to accelerate progress within the field and optimize the pathways of care.

The Zhu Family Center for Global Cancer Prevention supports the training of next-generation prevention and early-detection researchers, the recruitment of top talent in the field, and the education of policymakers, public health organizations, and health care providers to ensure that interventions are cost- effective and implementable within existing health systems. We are motivated by the belief that all populations worldwide should benefit from state-of-the-art cancer-prevention strategies.
