The Voice for Cancer Clinical Trials

The Coalition of Cancer Cooperative Groups is a unique nonprofit organization with one mission, improving patient awareness of cancer clinical trials, facilitating access, and promoting participation. Through innovative programs and services, the Coalition examines and confronts key issues impeding cancer research.

The Coalition of Cancer Cooperative Groups was established in 1997 to address its members’ shared goal of improving the cancer clinical trials system. Today, the Coalition is comprised of members from 10 National Cancer Institute-sponsored Cooperative Groups, the country’s leading patient advocacy organizations, and thousands of oncology and cancer research specialists. The Coalition also works with its partners in the healthcare industry to streamline and promote cancer clinical trials in both the public and private sectors.

Educational initiatives address public and patient awareness, highlighting invaluable contributions to cancer treatment already made by cancer clinical research. Tactical initiatives explore ways to promote best practices in cancer clinical trials and maximize efficiency by decreasing barriers.

The Coalition offers a variety of programs and information for physicians, patient advocate groups, and patients designed to increase awareness of, and participation in, cancer clinical trials.

The Coalition is a 501©3 organization. Grants, sponsorships, member dues, and other working relationships support the Coalition’s activities.
