I recently read an interesting cancer research article that reviewed trends in epigenetics based epidemiology research. The article is called Epigenetics in Cancer Epidemiology: Trends, Opportunities, and Challenges. The free article was published in December 2013 in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention. Which is produced by the AACR. The authors of the article work for the NCI, the National Cancer Institute. The article cited data from the NCI research grants as well as related articles published in pubmed. The study revealed that the top number of cancers: colorectal cancer lung cancer and breast cancer. The findings of this meta-study offers opportunities to translational research organizations as well as suppliers of research tools and technologies. This information will enable future application of the findings in the clinic.
