Institute for Cancer Outcomes and Survivorship


The Institute for Cancer Outcomes and Survivorship (ICOS) was founded by UAB to meet the needs of cancer survivors. ICOS seeks to design interventions and therapies to help survivors not only survive, but thrive.  With a continual rise in the number of cancer survivors, our goal is to better understand and address the long-term effects of cancer treatment on the overall health and well-being of survivors. 

Our mission is to reduce the burden of cancer and its sequelae across all segments of the population, through interdisciplinary research, health promotion and education.

We envision a world where cancer survivors live a long and healthy life.
