Development Activities in CCR
The Center for Cancer Research (CCR) is the basic and clinical research arm of the National Cancer Institute’s Intramural Program. Home to more than 250 scientists and clinicians, the CCR provides a unique community of researchers who work together to advance our knowledge of cancer and AIDS and to translate fundamental discoveries into novel therapies for patients. The CCR helps bring bench discoveries made by the investigators to the clinic for testing.
Examples of development work at the CCR include:
- The NIH Clinical Center is the site of CCR clinical trials
- The Comparative Oncology Program provides translational research models through the use of naturally occurring cancers in animals to gain a better understanding of cancer biology and treatment
- The Clinical Molecular Profiling Core facilitates biological data collection on every tumor entered into a CCR clinical trial
- The Center for Interventional Oncology investigates cancer therapies that use imaging technology
