Through the NCORP network, community physicians are able to collaborate with the NCI Clinical Trials Network Research Bases and Lead Academic Participating Sites on the development of research studies that impact patients in their communities.

Through participation in Multidisciplinary disease site research work groups, Physician investigators drive the evaluation and selection of clinical research trials most beneficial to patient populations served. Over 50 experienced Oncologists, Surgeons, Radiologists and Radiation Oncologists participate in NHCI Research.
