An Overview of NCI's National Clinical Trials Network and Its Accomplishments

On March 1, 2014, after several years of extensive consultation and coordination with many stakeholders, NCI transformed its longstanding Cooperative Group program into the new National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN). Guided by recommendations in a 2010 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, the design and implementation of the NCTN incorporates feedback from Cooperative Group investigators, NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center directors, several NCI working groups, leading cancer researchers, industry representatives, and patient advocates.
