International Cancer of the Head and Neck, Genetics and Environment (InterCHANGE) Study in East Asia
The Interchange Study in East Asia will examine lifestyle and genetic risk factors for head and neck cancer. We hope to identify protective factors against head and neck cancer, relevant for the US population, because despite the high smoking prevalence, the incidence rates are low in East Asia compared to other regions.
The Office of Cooperative Reproductive Health (OCRH) conducts research and education to increase understanding of normal human fertility and subfertility, the menstrual cycle, and the application of that knowledge by women, couples, clinicians, and researchers. Our philosophy is that knowledge regarding fertility can help couples achieve their pregnancy intentions in the healthiest ways possible, provide clinicians with powerful tools for restorative reproductive medicine, and aid researchers in understanding fecundity, pregnancy, and human development.
