Our mission is to study and improve health outcomes of young adult cancer survivors

The USC Center for Young Adult Cancer Survivorship Research is an interdisciplinary collaborative comprising more than 30 affiliate faculty, trainees, and patient advocates at the University of Southern California. Our research focuses on population health, health services and systems, wellbeing, quality of life, and medical outcomes among young cancer survivors under the age of 50.

Our Work

A major aim of the Center is to train the next generation of researchers in pediatric, adolescent, and young adult cancer survivorship. The Center is a training ground for:

• Undergraduate and graduate students across the University Park and the Health Sciences campuses

• Postdoctoral fellows and other doctoral-level trainees who would like additional specialized training to transition into independent research careers

• Resident physicians and medical fellows interested in young adult cancer survivorship research

Training is supervised by the Center directors. Learn more about our research and how you can get involved:
