Abstract

To facilitate the cancer study at Mayo Clinic, Mayo CPC (Can- cer Population Control) initiated a study on the landscape of NCI funded principle investigators (PIs), who focus on cancer preven- Tions, cancer control and population science. In this work, we conducted a bibliometric analysis on such research by applying author topic modeling (ATM) on MEDLINE citations published by currently-funded PIs from both DCP (Division of Cancer Pre- ventions) and DCCPS (Division of Cancer Control and Population Science. Our initial results show that ATM can address the issue of research interests reasonably. Furthermore, a network involv- ing authors, topics and words can be established for more detailed bibliometric analysis. This network may also be useful to grantees and funding administrators in suggesting potential collaborators.
