Cervical Cancer Research Projects

ACCME Epidemiology, Genomics and Microbiomics of HPV and cervical cancer study

This is a multi-country, multi-institutional collaborative effort to implement high impact integrative research into discovery of biomarkers associated with cervical carcinogenesis. This research offers several opportunities to advance understanding of cervical carcinogenesis, viral oncogenesis, new biomarker discovery and risk stratification by genotype in a cohort of African women.

Nigerian Cervical Cancer Screening ECHO Project

The Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO) model was developed as a platform to deliver complex specialty medical care to underserved populations through an innovative educational model of team‐based interdisciplinary development. Using state‐of‐the‐art telehealth technology, best practice protocols, and case‐based learning, ECHO trains and supports primary care providers to develop knowledge and self‐efficacy on a variety of diseases. This model will be used to improve cervical cancer care delivery in Nigeria.

Cancer Registration

Cancer registration is critical to the formulation and realization of any national, state or local cancer control plan. We have assisted the Federal Ministry of Health in Nigeria to develop the National Cancer Control Plan (2018 – 2022) and generate incidence report through the data collected by the cancer registries in Nigeria.
