Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network

Modeling to guide public health research and priorities

Lung Cancer Modeling

The CISNET lung group was initiated in the second round of CISNET I and consists of five modeling teams and two affiliate members. The groups' interests include areas such as tobacco control policies, screening, and genetic susceptibility. The models incorporate the association between smoking and lung cancer in various ways, from epidemiologic models to more mechanistic models, including various versions of the two-stage clonal expansion model of carcinogenesis.
