Limited Submission Announcement

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Minority-Based Community Clinical Oncology Program (Minority-Based CCOP) allows practicing oncologists who serve large minority populations to participate in NCI-sponsored clinical trials. The purpose of this program is to support, as a national resource, research activities of physicians involved in the care of minorities who are eligible to participate in NCI-sponsored cancer prevention, control, and treatment clinical trials. The NCI clinical trials program supports Minority-Based CCOP groups by providing access to clinical trials in cancer centers, major university centers, and community programs. The linkage of minority cancer patients/participants to the current clinical trials network facilitates the transfer of new research advancements in cancer prevention/control/treatment practices to minority communities and their physicians.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, May 29, 2009. Letters of intent should be limited to a 3-page summary including 1) service areas, 2) plan for meeting accrual requirements, 3) implementation plans for at least two clinical trials, and 4) quality control procedures.
