The service provider offers more than 1,000 physicians nationwide who share in the development of clinical research, public policy initiatives and innovative cancer care advancements.
The following video from our partners at US Oncology Network shares more about how clinical research works. The video tells the story of people who make it all possible, including CCCN’s Dr. Nicholas Vogelzang, as well as patients whose lives have been saved through research.

Community Clinical Oncology Program
The Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) was established by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in 1983. Through this program, community physicians work with scientists conducting NCI-supported clinical trials. The CCOP introduces the newest clinical research findings and procedures to community settings. CCCN is affiliated with Nevada Cancer Research Foundation, which is a CCOP. Through this affiliation, CCCN oncologists are able to bring the latest cancer procedures and treatments to its patients.
In some cases, CCCN works with pharmaceutical companies independently to bring new treatments and novel therapies in cancer research to the community.
