Cancer Research in Your Community
Working alone, no single sector of the cancer community can bring about progress in cancer research.
As the leader of the National Cancer Program, the NCI serves as the coordinator of many different research efforts and disciplines to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. Across the United States and globally, NCI staff works with experts in technology development, information management, basic science, translational and clinical research, and health care delivery to move toward this goal.
This section provides information on NCI's collaborations and partnerships in your community, and state-specific information on cancer research.
