Thank you for your interest in distributing cancer information from the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Office of Communications (OC). OC's mission is to increase the dissemination of timely, credible cancer information to health professionals, patients, and the public, so we actively seek partnerships with organizations willing to assist us in achieving our goals.

Requests to license NCI cancer information are evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Does the organization share NCI's goal of disseminating/sharing cancer information?
  • What is the impact of the organization's efforts? Would the organization's licensing of NCI's cancer information reach a large and/or new audience?
  • Can the organization update the information monthly?
  • Can the organization provide usage statistics?
