CCS Associates, Inc. (CCSA) is proud to announce two newly awarded contracts by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Division of Cancer Prevention (DCP) to continue their long-term support and collaboration in cancer prevention research. The technical, scientific, and regulatory experts at CCSA will support DCP’s mission to lead, conduct, and support cancer prevention research across the nation and the globe to advance scientific knowledge and help all people to live longer, healthier lives. DCP conducts and supports research to determine a person’s risk of developing cancer and to find ways to reduce that risk. Through laboratory, clinical, and epidemiological research, scientists have shown that the diseases of cancer occur not as single, catastrophic events, but rather as the result of a complex and long-evolving molecular process that can take decades. This long-term process of carcinogenesis provides time and opportunities to slow down, stop, or reverse the cellular changes that can become cancer.
