In this section, you can learn about the latest research on endometrial cancer among Black women and on partnerships for endometrial cancer research. You will also find information from investigators in the field and endometrial cancer survivors and patients participating in research partnership and opportunities to get involved yourself. 

 

If you have had endometrial cancer and identify as Black/African-American please take a moment to fill out the ECANA Community Survey - part of our efforts to make sure endometrial cancer research reflects your voice.

If you are an investigator, a patient involved with a research partnership, or interested in getting involved, see our page for investigators or contact us - we would love to hear from you!
