UNC TREND is designed to promote translational, laboratory, population, and clinical research to reduce cancer disparities in Non-Hispanic Black women with endometrial cancer.
Endometrial cancer is the 4th most common cancer in American women. It represents one of the largest racial cancer disparities in North Carolina and the United States. Compared to Non-Hispanic White women, Non-Hispanic Black women have a 55% higher five-year mortality rate from endometrial cancer.
Through two research focus projects, the UNC TREND team will investigate the impact of various factors on endometrial cancer outcomes.
