The Cooperative Gynecologic Oncology Investigators-Women’s Cancer Research Network (COGI-WCRN), based at Stanford University, is a consortium of cancer researchers from several leading academic medical centers in the United States. This group was formed in 2004 to focus on the development of novel therapies for gynecologic cancer.

COGI-WCRN supports clinical and laboratory programs to develop therapies for gynecologic cancers. We are a member of the international consortium of cooperative clinical trials group for gynecologic malignancies, the Gynecologic Cancer Intergroup (GCIG).
