Minority-Based Community Clinical Oncology Program Groups

by:

The National Institutes of Health, more commonly referred to as NIH, is a federal government agency operating under the purview of the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is primarily responsible for supporting the nation's biomedical and health-related research studies.

The grants and programs of the NIH are all magnanimously engineered to assist in the realization of its primary agency mission which is to "seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability."

In line with this mission, the National Institutes of Health has recently collaborated with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in an attempt to establish the Minority-Based Community Clinical Oncology Program Groups (MBCCOP).

The primary purpose of the program is to support research initiatives involving physicians who are participating in the care of minorities and who are eligible to participate in NCI-sponsored cancer prevention, control, and treatment clinical trials.

In addition, the program also serves as an opportunity for practicing oncologists who serve large racial/ethnic minority populations to participate in clinical trials sponsored by the National Cancer Institute.

Essentially, this program is designed to cater to minority populations and to bring forth state-of-the-art cancer clinical trials to minority individuals in their own communities.
