About the ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group
The ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group, a member network that designs and conducts biomarker-driven cancer research involving adults who have, or are at risk of developing, cancer, was formed in May 2012 by the merger of the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) and the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN), two highly respected National Cancer Institute (NCI)-sponsored cancer cooperative groups. The Group comprises nearly 650 member institutions, including community hospitals; academic medical centers; NCI-designated cancer centers, Community Cancer Oncology Programs (CCOPs) and Minority-based CCOPs, health systems, and physician practices, in the United States and around the world. Approximately 6000 individual physicians, translational scientists, and associated research professionals from the member institutions are involved in Group research, which is organized into three programs: Biomarker Sciences, Therapeutic Studies, and Cancer Control and Outcomes.
