Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University

Division of Population Science

In 2008, the Department of Medical Oncology and the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University established the Division of Population Science to provide a central focus for institutional research activities related to cancer prevention and control.

The division was formed to advance applied research in behavioral, social, and epidemiological science; develop new methods that can be used to improve the quality of cancer care; and reduce the burden of cancer in diverse populations.
