Institute for Cancer Outcomes and Survivorship

Founded in 2015 to meet the needs of the growing population of cancer survivors

The Institute for Cancer Outcomes and Survivorship (ICOS) at UAB aims to reduce the burden of cancer and its sequelae across all segments of the population, through interdisciplinary research, health promotion and education, envisioning a world where cancer survivors live long and healthy lives.


Our members include epidemiologists, biostatisticians, physician scientists, behavioral scientists, nurse scientists, and molecular biologists examining health outcomes in cancer survivors across all cancer diagnoses, all ages, and across the entire trajectory of disease (diagnosis to end-of-life).
