CBPR approach to reduce specific cancer disparities through a combination of outreach, research and training. The goal
of the CNP Centers is to increase knowledge of, access to and utilization of beneficial biomedical and behavioral procedures

this CNP issuance, a particular emphasis is on high quality intervention research involving controlled and rigorous studies.
Applicant teams must be based on established partnerships between academic institution(s) and targeted community
entities/community-serving healthcare organizations. The partnering community components are expected to contribute
substantially to the design of the Center programs proposed in the applications.
