Staying close to your community and receiving cancer care
Reducing cancer risk and incidence and Improving outcomes
TAKING PART IN NCORP
Finding clinical trials, exploring NCI cancer resources, and locating NCORP sites
Being able to join research studies in a person’s own community allows them to stay close to family, friends, support systems and their local physicians and health organizations, where high quality clinical studies are resulting in better care.
NCORP designs and conducts cancer prevention, control, screening, and post-treatment surveillance trials; conducts cancer care delivery research, including comparative effectiveness research; and integrates disparities research questions into clinical trials and cancer care delivery research.
NCORP clinical trials and research studies are underway at sites throughout the country. NCORP brings researchers together with community based physicians to conduct high quality clinical studies for cancer patients and for people at risk of cancer in local settings, where most patients receive their care.
Look for the NCI Community Oncology Research Program badge to identify members of this national network. Research led by NCORP investigators is aimed at reducing cancer risk and incidence; improving cancer care outcomes; expanding access to cancer care; increasing quality and balancing cost; and reducing cancer disparities.
The investigators, cancer care providers, academic institutions, and other organizations that take part in NCORP conduct multi-site cancer clinical trials and studies in community-based healthcare systems across the United States and Puerto Rico. Search for participating sites in your area by name or with an interactive map.
