Researchers Search the Genome for Clues to Early Age Onset Cancers in Racial/Ethnic Minorities

While researchers have identified some of the genetic changes that lead to cancer development, a key knowledge gap remains: finding the genetic changes that drive the development of cancers that arise at an earlier age than average (early onset) in racially and ethnically diverse populations.

NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) Expands to More States

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has awarded 53 grants to researchers in the NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) to conduct multi-site cancer clinical trials and cancer care delivery studies in their communities.

NCORP Tissue Procurement Protocol to Open at 12 Community Sites

At 12 NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) sites across the United States, a new kind of study will soon be opening for patients with advanced malignancies being treated with molecularly targeted therapies. The NCORP Tissue Procurement Protocol (NCI 10231, NCT 03707574) is not a treatment trial, but a study to assess if researchers can obtain tissue and blood samples at baseline and...
