National Cancer Institute Affiliation

The National Cancer Institute has designated Green Bay Oncology, and its partners at the St. Vincent Regional Cancer Center, as the region’s only participant in its renowned Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP):

 

  • One of just 34 NCORPs in the U.S. and one of only three in Wisconsin.
  • Conducting clinical trials to evaluate new cancer treatment options.
  • Identifying new ways to detect, diagnose and treat cancer.

This means our patients get access to groundbreaking new treatments, often years before anyone else.

More about NCORP:

The Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) is a network for testing and validating medical interventions against cancer, and for delivering the benefits of scientific discovery to the public and community physicians. The network increases the involvement of oncologists and other health professionals in NCI-approved clinical trials as full research partners; improves the quality of cancer care in local communities by disseminating research findings; and boosts participation of minority and underserved populations in cancer clinical trials. The NCORP Network was created in 1983 as a national mechanism for community-based physicians to partner with academic investigators. The primary goal was to accelerate implementation of NCI clinical trials for cancer prevention, control and treatment. The Minority-Based NCORP program started in 1990 as a companion mechanism to reach areas with large minority populations.
