Report on Carcinogens

The Office of the Report on Carcinogens — headed by Ruth M. Lunn, Dr.P.H — coordinates one of the NTP's hazard evaluation activities. The Office of the RoC's scientific staff, with assistance from the RoC support contract staff, prepares the Report on Carcinogens , a congressionally mandated report that identifies substances or exposure circumstances that may pose a hazard to human health by virtue of their carcinogenicity. Substances are listed in the report as either known or reasonably anticipated human carcinogens.

The Office of the RoC:

  • conducts cancer hazard evaluations of substances of potential concern
  • convenes scientific review meetings and workshops
  • prepares the draft RoC for submission to the Secretary, HHS
  • serves as a scientific resource for information on environmental exposures and cancer hazards
