Cancer Clinical Trials Cooperative Group Activities
National Cancer Institute Cooperative Groups
National Cancer Institute (NCI) cooperative groups consist of networks of researchers who develop and conduct cancer treatment clinical trials throughout the nation. Emphasis is placed on the development and conduct of large, multicenter, randomized phase 3 studies.
National Cancer Institute Clinical Trials Network
The SCI is a recipient of a U10 Lead Academic Participating Site award as part of the National Cancer Institute's Clinical Trials Network (NCTN). Through this network we offer many NCTN trials as potential treatment options for our patients.
Our faculty are involved in:
- Scientific contributions to the NCTN.
- Participate as lead investigators on national multi-center cancer clinical trials.
Through our ECOG-ACRIN affiliation SCI has ongoing partnerships with community hospitals throughout the Greater Bay Area. The SCI is committed to providing the broadest access possible to NCTN trials and therapeutic advances they may offer.
