  2. Early Detection of childhood cancer; reduce disease severity and complications, e.g. screening.
  3. Prevention of childhood cancer; prevent the initial development of disease, e.g. immunization, reduce exposure
  4. Comparative effectiveness and outcomes research; evaluate existing or new preventative/therapeutic measures to improve health outcomes for children with cancer or evaluate access to treatment.
  5. Molecular epidemiology studies; identify the contribution of potential genetic risk factors to late effects of treatment, within families and across populations.

The budget may include items such as salary, fringe, supplies, and travel.
