Carolina Cancer Screening Initiative
Cancer Prevention and Control
Area of Interest
Reuland’s primary areas of inquiry are in cancer prevention and control, though he collaborates on studies in other disease areas. He is currently principal investigator of a multi-site, clinical trial funded by the National Cancer Institute’s Accelerating Cancer Screening and Follow Up through Implementation Science (ACCSIS) Program testing a colorectal cancer screening intervention in North Carolina Federally Qualified Health Centers. He recently led a multi-disciplinary effort to develop policies, processes, and tools needed for appropriate implementation of lung cancer screening within the UNC Health Care System, and he is the PI on a National Cancer Institute research grant to develop and test lung cancer screening decision support tools. Reuland is the Director of the Carolina Cancer Screening Initiative, supported by the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and University Cancer Research Fund, which focuses on improving the delivery of evidence-based cancer screening in North Carolina. He also serves as Associate Director of the Inclusive Science Program within the North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute.
Reuland holds appointments in the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Care Center – Cancer Prevention and Control Program, Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research, and the North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute.
