Oncology Clinical Trials Information for Industry

NCCN Oncology Research Program (ORP)

The NCCN Oncology Research Program (ORP) is a comprehensive program of research platforms and scientific advisors to foster the development of world-class therapies to treat people with cancer. The NCCN ORP's core services focus on assisting companies with drug development plans and strategies, facilitating the conduct of preclinical, translational, and clinical research at NCCN Member Institutions, and ensuring that results of funded research projects are publicly disseminated.  The NCCN ORP can also establish research collaborations between NCCN Member Institutions and industry in Phase IV, quality-of-life, cancer prevention, and outcomes research.

NCCN ORP Mission Statement

The NCCN ORP fosters innovation and knowledge discovery that improve the lives of patients with cancer.

Guiding Principles:

  1. Study both FDA-approved and investigational agents/devices, to seek novel enhanced, effective, and efficient cancer therapy.
  2. Develop new insights into cancer care delivery outcomes and quality, as well as identify solutions to barriers affecting optimal cancer management.
  3. Increase opportunities for NCCN Member Institution faculty to participate in oncologic investigation and support those who are, or will become, leaders in cancer research.
  4. Demonstrate that constructive, appropriate, and transparent collaboration between academia and industry results in valuable knowledge and improved cancer management.
  5. Ensure the dissemination of knowledge gained through the program to the medical community at large through presentations at meetings and/or publication in peer-reviewed journals.
