Cancer Epidemiology & Outcome Research

The UCT Mainz has a long-standing expertise in cancer epidemiology and outcome research with a specific focus on the identification of risk factors for cancer incidence and mortality and on late effects after cancer treatment. Research on late effects comprises analyses of survival, occurrence of secondary malignancies and cardiovascular late effects, quality of life, psychosocial rehabilitation, and cancer survivorship.



Future aims include the integration of quality of life measurements with patient-reported outcomes as a standard into all phase III cancer clinical trials at the UCT Mainz and the improvement of the infrastructure for high-dimensional data analyses with the formation of a data hub at the UCT Mainz. In addition, we will establish a collaboration with the Sports Science Faculty to investigate the association between physical activity and immune response.
