Cancer Epidemiology conducts epidemiologic research on the etiology and prognosis of cancers of greatest global public health importance, with an emphasis on recommending preventive practices. 

Established in 1988 thanks to a generous endowment to McGill by The Cancer Research Society, Cancer Epidemiology is primarily a departmental unit in the Gerald Bronfman Department of Oncology; however it is also officially recognized as the Cancer Epidemiology Unit in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, along with the established clinical epidemiology units based in the McGill hospitals.

Cancer Epidemiology provides statistical and study planning expertise to researchers in the Department of Oncology, and is responsible for all of the teaching in cancer epidemiology and prevention to McGill undergraduate and graduate students.
