Breakfast Forum 1
Transdisciplinary Science in the Centers for Population Health and
Health Disparities (CPHHD) Initiative
Cholla I

Chairperson: Shobha Srinivasan, National Cancer Institute, Rockville, MD

The Centers for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD) were funded in 2003 to take a
transdisciplinary approach to understanding and ameliorating health disparities by engaging social,
behavioral, and biological investigators on teams, working in partnership with community stakeholders. In
this session, we first will distinguish transdisciplinary research from multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary
research and briefly describe the CPHHD. The approach will be illustrated by examples from the centers that
focus on prostate, breast, and cervical cancer. Lastly, we will provide an overview of lessons learned from the
new, transdisciplinary approach to team science and discuss its implications for the future of research in
cancer health disparities.

Raising Culture as a Priority in Cancer Intervention Research
Saguaro Ballroom

Chairperson: Amelie G. Ramirez, University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, TX

This session will focus on the importance of understanding how culture impacts health beliefs and behaviors
within cancer research. A comprehensive understanding of culturally tailored health behavior theory and
effective communication is critical to successfully reducing health disparities within multicultural and
multilingual populations. The significance of culture and using a transdisciplinary approach to study cancer
screening practices is necessary to achieve meaningful research outcomes. The overall goal of this session is
to raise culture as a priority in cancer intervention research and advance the communication strategies and
skills used in cancer control in our multicultural society.

                          hepatitis B vaccination and subsequently a vaccine against some forms of human papilloma viruses
                          responsible for cervical cancer, disparities persist. During this session, presenters will summarize the status of
                          controlling and preventing infectious causes of cancer but also discuss socio-economic, cultural, and other
                          dimensions that may explain the persistence of cancer health disparities and more importantly, directions
                          that need to be pursued for the reduction of these disparities.

Early Detection and Screening
Cholla I

Co-Chairpersons: Lucile L. Adams-Campbell, Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center at Georgetown
University, Washington, DC; and Marcia R. Cruz-Correa, University of Puerto Rico Comprehensive Cancer
Center, San Juan, PR

Ethnic/racial differences in early detection and screening rates are thought to account, to a great extent, for
the differences in cancer burden observed among minority populations in particular. Although early detection
and screening diagnostic methods are available for breast, prostate, cervical, and colon sites, there are
disparities regarding utilization attributed to access, decision-making, culture, and co-morbidities. This session
will address cancer disparities related to early detection and screening with a focus on epidemiology,
biological mechanisms, and behaviors.

     Secondary Data Analysis of National and State Health Survey Data:
     Access, Analysis, and Funding
     Cholla I

     Chairperson: Richard P. Moser, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD

     Numerous federal and state health survey databases are publicly available that are currently underutilized by
     research scientists. Many of these databases capture national estimates of health-related behavior,
     knowledge, and attitudes. Secondary data analyses of existing databases may serve as an economical
     alternative to expensive and time-consuming new data collection projects and may serve as a valuable tool
     to test complex statistical models, perform meta-analyses and develop and test empirical hypotheses. The
     seminar, through lecture, applied demonstrations, and group discussion will inform participants about
     Internet-based health survey databases available for analysis and describe the utility and content of these
     databases, as well as explain how to access and analyze the data. Presentations will highlight analytic issues
     involved with utilizing these data, describe statistical software available to perform analyses, describe
     relevant NIH funding mechanisms, and discuss the process of obtaining funding with successful applicants.

Racial and Ethnic Variations in the Molecular Profiles of Cancer:
The Foundation for Classification and Therapeutic Targeting
Saguaro Ballroom

Chairperson: Cheryl L. Willman, University of New Mexico Cancer Center, Albuquerque, NM

Comprehensive molecular profiling of human cancers using many parallel technologies and platforms
(gene expression profiling, whole genome profiling to identify fine regions of copy number change, genetic
polymorphisms, molecular genetics and cytogenetics, proteomics, and pathologic and biologic
characterization) are now being applied to large cancer patient cohorts. These studies are leading to new
insights into the distinct genetic pathways underlying malignant transformation and are yielding new genetic
biomarkers that can be used for risk assessment, disease classification, and as potential new targets for
therapy. Despite the rapid pace of this area of science, less progress has been made in determining how these
molecular profiles vary in distinct ethnic and racial groups. Such research on large, ethnically and racially
balanced cohorts is critical as disease risk, prognostic genetic markers, and specific therapeutic targets may
well vary in different populations. In this session, focusing on colorectal, breast, and prostate cancer and
acute leukemia, we will provide scientific updates of the application of molecular profiling technologies to
cancers across distinct racial and ethnic groups.

     Disparities in cancer outcomes continue to grow despite interventions to increase screening, access to
     treatment, and preventive strategies. New approaches, that consider multiple levels of factors that contribute
     to disparities, must be tested. This session presents multi-level approaches to addressing cancer health
     disparities among Appalachian, African-American, and Latino populations. Presenters will describe how to
     integrate biological and behavioral level variables into populations whose physical environment contributes
     to health disparities.

A Sampling of Cancer Survivorship Research: New Findings and Future Directions
Saguaro Ballroom

Chairperson: Diana D. Jeffery, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD

The major objective of this session is to raise awareness and provide information about the often profound
health disparities that occur during cancer survivorship. This session will provide an overview of health
disparities research that focuses on the interim between active treatment and end-of-life. Community-based
research supported by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® that addresses health disparities among breast
cancer survivors will be reviewed; programs in areas with high level of needs and underserved cancer
survivors will be presented. Two NIH funded studies will be presented by their principal investigators, one of
whom will report on racial/ethnic differences in health-related quality of life and treatment outcomes among
survivors of prostate cancer, and the other who will report on the results of an intervention with low-income
and medically uninsured cancer survivors identified as clinically depressed.

                          Solutions to the problem of cancer disparities lie in transdisciplinary research aimed at understanding the
                          complex interactions of biological, social, cultural, environmental, and behavioral factors. The NIH-funded
                          Centers for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD) and the Breast Cancer and the Environment
                          Research Centers (BCERC) have developed new research paradigms and approaches that address the
                          multifactorial and complex nature of cancer disparities. Among these innovations is the inclusion of
                          molecular biology, biochemistry, animal models into health disparities research to build on laboratory-based
                          studies related to allostatic load, biological determinants of stress and social isolation, and the
                          implementation of biomarkers to better understand the biological mechanism and processes that contribute
                          to health disparities. The laboratory methods and infrastructure that have been developed in these areas will
                          facilitate additional biologically-oriented studies of health disparities to be rapidly undertaken in the coming
                          years to inform clinical interventions, clinical practice, and population-based studies. However, biology alone
                          will not explain or be able to eliminate cancer disparities without considering the context in which this
                          biology acts. Therefore, the CPHHD/BCERC models incorporate neighborhood context, individual exposures,
                          access to care, behavior, and other relevant factors into multilevel disparities models. These models have
                          been applied in a community-based participatory research setting to allow for the appropriate translation of
                          research into relevant communities. Finally, these approaches emphasize dissemination of research results
                          that can be translated to policy change to eliminate health disparities. This session will provide a summary of
                          the work being done by using this multilevel, translational approach to cancer disparities.

The Science Behind Cervical Cancer Disparities
Saguaro Ballroom

Chairperson: Francisco A. R. Garcia, University Arizona, Tucson, AZ

This session will discuss our evolving understanding of the causes of cervical cancer disparities. Specifically
how these are informed by our excellent understanding HPV infection and the etiology of this disease, as well
as new insights from the fields of molecular epidemiology, virology, and communications. Discussants will
comment on the population level impact of primary, secondary, and tertiary cervical cancer prevention
interventions and how these will impact minority and medically underserved populations.

                          A growing of body of literature underscores the need for greater population diversity in US-based cancer-
                          related trials. Numerous studies conducted in diverse settings, have identified barriers to- and facilitators of
                          participation in such trials. However, there are scant data on the efficacy and/or effectiveness of specific
                          intervention strategies to improve participation in cancer-related trials among racial/ethnic minorities and
                          populations of low socioeconomic status. This session will examine novel scientific evidence on determinants
