Cancer Research and Clinical Trials
North Colorado Medical Center is proud to be affiliated with the Colorado Cancer Research Program (CCRP), which provides our patients with access to national research studies and the most advanced treatments available.
By participating in cancer research, we can offer patients the latest in treatment options and technology. We are part of a comprehensive clinical trial network, and are able to disseminate the latest cancer prevention and treatment research findings to the community level. Created in 1983 by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the network enables patients and physicians to participate in over 75 clinical trials conducted at major research centers across the country, District of Columbia, and Canada.
Participation in clinical trials benefits patients and physicians in the community and scientists in research centers. The program helps in the transfer of the latest research findings in the community. It also increases the number of patients and physicians who can participate in clinical trials operated at major research centers, and allows scientists to conduct large-scale cancer prevention and control studies.
Our highly trained Oncology Research staff at North Colorado Medical Center work in collaboration with patients, families, and physicians to support cancer research in northern Colorado. Our staff has the most current information on available research studies and can help you find a study to match your individual needs.
