About the Director's Consumer Liaison Group
The Director’s Consumer Liaison Group (DCLG) is the only federal advisory committee comprised of advocate leaders at NCI. DCLG members are chosen for their expert knowledge of issues of importance to the cancer research community. The DCLG focuses on matters that facilitate research and often identifies and responds to challenges facing the Institute at the request of NCI leadership. In addition, the DCLG brings their unique skills and perspectives by identifying new approaches, promoting innovation, recognizing unforeseen risks or barriers, and identifying unintended consequences that could result from NCI decisions. The DCLG focuses on enhancing community input, optimizing community outreach, and promoting strong collaborations to improve research outcomes.
Information on past DCLG meetings, including agendas and summaries, can be found through the NCI Division of Extramural Activities.
