Stories of Cancer Research

NCI supports cancer research to advance scientific knowledge to better understand, prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat cancer and to help cancer survivors live longer, healthier lives. The NCI Fiscal Year 2025 Professional Judgement Budget Proposal shares the stories of Kellie, a participant in a clinical trial offered through the NCI Community Oncology Research Program in her area, and Erin, an NCI-funded researcher working with data from a large health system to develop ways to improve the quality of life of cancer survivors.
