The Wake Forest NCORP (NCI Community Oncology Research Program) Research Base is one of seven research bases funded by the NCI to develop and implement cancer prevention and control research for the NCORP community oncology research network. We partner with NCORP Community and Minority Underserved Community Sites across the county to test new approaches to cancer care delivery and the treatment, prevention and detection of cancer-related symptoms. Our goal is to conduct practice-changing cancer research that will improve patient outcomes.
Wake Forest NCORP provides the opportunity for community physicians to participate in NCI-supported treatment and cancer control and prevention trials. These trials test new approaches to cancer care delivery and the treatment, prevention and detection of cancer-related symptom management and outcomes.
Our goal is to conduct practice-changing cancer prevention and control research that will improve patient outcomes. Our studies are designed to be easy to implement and manage. Almost without exception, we will provide drugs for the study at no cost to the patient and limit any follow up to that which is relevant to the study.
Our accrual year runs from August 1 through the following July 31.
The Wake Forest NCORP Research Base has now implemented a password-protected web program for accessing all protocol documents and resources. For login information, visit the Member Area below.
