Behavioral Measurement Shared Resource Core


Human behavior is an integral part of efforts to control and prevent cancer. The mission of the VCU Massey Cancer Center Behavioral Measurement Shared Resource Core is to provide support to investigators conducting cancer research involving behavioral constructs by:

  • Helping to identify psychometrically sound measures
  • Assisting in research design and the analysis of behavioral data
  • Supporting the behavioral measurement aspects of the grant process from the conceptualization of behavioral constructs to the publication and presentation of results


All publications that include results, services or products generated by the VCU Massey Cancer Center Shared Resources must include the following acknowledgement in the manuscript:

"Services and products in support of the research project were generated by the VCU Massey Cancer Center Behavioral Measurement Shared Resource, supported, in part, with funding from NIH-NCI Cancer Center Support Grant P30 CA016059."

PubMed Central (PMC) ID numbers are required for those publications that use CCSG-supported shared resources. All of Massey Cancer Center's shared resources are supported by the CCSG. Information to assist you with this process can be found here
