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

The Southern California Center for Young Adult Cancer Survivorship Research is an interdisciplinary collaborative comprising affiliated clinical and research faculty, staff, trainees, and patient advocates at the University of Southern California and the University of California, Irvine. Our research focuses on population health, health services and systems, wellbeing, quality of life, and medical outcomes among young cancer survivors up to approximately middle age.

Our Work

The Southern California Center for Young Adult Cancer Survivorship Research was developed to increase connectivity and facilitate meaningful collaborations among faculty and associates who maintain, or wish to develop, a research focus in this area. Through raising awareness of opportunities, highlighting the availability of clinical and scientific resources, and hosting an expert speaker series, the Center aims to support investigators in their pursuit of research and competitive grant funding.

A major priority of the Center is training the next generation of researchers in pediatric, adolescent, and young adult cancer survivorship. Trainees from relevant disciplines at all levels are welcome to explore the possibilities.
