Research Networks

Until recently, cancer-related health services and economics research has depended heavily on retrospective data obtained from administrative databases or surveys conducted at the national level. More detailed, prospective studies have usually been limited to small studies conducted at single institutions, or from highly selected convenience samples. To address this problem, NCI has begun to sponsor national research networks, supported through cooperative agreement grants. The networks listed here provide direct access to prospective and retrospective information and allow active collaboration between network members and NCI research staff.
