The Community Oncology and Prevention Trials Research Group supports clinical oncology trials in cancer prevention and control in community settings. The group also supports investigator-initiated research projects in supportive, palliative and end-of-life care, and coordinates clinical oncology research projects with other NCI programs to be done in the community setting.
NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP)
A clinical trials network of cancer professionals brings research to diverse populations across the country in the communities where most patients live.
Supportive Care and Symptom Management
Clinical trials and grant-funded projects examine symptoms and morbidities related to cancer and its treatment, with a focus on interventions to improve quality of life.
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.
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.
