Advances in Research and Clinical Trials
One of the main goals of the National Cancer Institute's Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) is to expand clinical trials and offer patient access to the latest trials available - all within their own community. With NCORP, the Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion (LCRP) has greater access to clinical trials, expanded the number of clinical trials available to patients, started participating in early phase clinical trials, increased focus on minority and underserved population participation in clinical trials and joined the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG), which provides greater access to national clinical trials.
Visit the Georgia NCORP site for more information on clinical trials.
