Message from the Directors

The UPenn PRC is a catalyst for research in chronic disease prevention and a leader in advancing the science and practice of prevention research. Along with our ongoing studies in cancer prevention, cognitive health, and new strategies for weight loss, we’re researching adolescent and young adult survivors of childhood cancers, the economic impact of clinical trials, and a Penn-community partnership, the Philadelphia Health Leadership Institute.  We invite you to learn more about these projects and our dedicated investigators and staff on this website.

Q & A Spotlight

  • How has the PRC strengthened community-engaged research at Penn?
    Being part of a CDC Prevention Research Center draws a lot of Penn faculty to think differently about their engagement with both local community in Philadelphia and in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Building a group of strong community partners, as we have, has been a catalyst for a lot of people to get drawn into interesting opportunities to not only make an impact around the world but to focus a good part of their attentions locally where we can also make a big difference.
