The ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group, a multidisciplinary, membership-based scientific organization, has established three programs as the formal structure of its research activities: Cancer Control and Outcomes, Therapeutic Studies, and Biomarker Sciences. The formation of three distinct—yet complementary—scientific programs was necessary to accommodate the Group’s expansive research portfolio, as well as the size, diversity, and multidisciplinary nature of the membership.
Group science emanates from integral, interrelated interactions across the three programs, which contain nearly 30 standing committees, subcommittees, and working groups, many members of which are nationally recognized key thought leaders with broad experience in clinical research disciplines and translational science. ECOG-ACRIN members are encouraged to be involved across the three programs by serving on multiple committees and working groups, an integration that provides a dynamic multidisciplinary environment in which to pursue new scientific concepts.
The three scientific programs are listed here, with brief descriptions and links to additional information:
Together, the three scientific programs address ECOG-ACRIN’s stated purpose, which is to achieve research advances in all aspects of cancer care.
