Wake Forest NCORP Research Base

The Wake Forest NCORP (NCI Community Oncology Research Program) Research Base has been funded by the National Cancer Institute to serve as a research base for cancer center affiliates and for NCI funded NCORP Community Sites.

Through this program, community physicians can participate in NCI-supported treatment and cancer control/prevention trials. These trials test new approaches toward cancer care delivery and the treatment, prevention and detection of cancer related symptom management and its outcomes. 

Our goal is to conduct practice changing cancer prevention/control research that will improve patient outcomes.  Our studies are designed to be “user friendly.” Almost without exception, we will provide drug at no cost to the patient, and will minimize follow-up limiting it to that which is relevant to the study.  

Each of our studies is associated with a full 1.0 credit from the National Cancer Institute’s Department of Cancer Prevention’s Community Oncology Branch.  Our accrual year runs from March 1st through the following February 28th.
