Partnerships: Industry & Academic

Engaging Industry and Academic Partners

CCTG is know for cancer clinical trial research and is the world's largest cooperative collaborative oncology group. Our success is realized through our network of investigators who develop scientifically important and meaningful trials, conducted both rapidly and to rigorous standards. With over 40 years of experience there is no network that rivals the depth and breadth of operations with a global reputation for rapid execution of quality clinical trials.


National and international collaboration

Industry partnerships

While CCTG trials are independently conducted, analyzed and reported. Pharmaceutical or academic drug manufacturers provide CCTG access to their investigational new drugs because they recognize the high quality research being conducted through the group.
