This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications from institutions/organizations to participate in the National Cancer Institute's Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) as NCORP Research Bases. The goal of NCORP is to build upon the scope and activities of NCI's previously supported community networks, the Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) which includes CCOP community sites (CCOPs), Minority-Based CCOP sites (MB-CCOPs), and CCOP Research Bases, and NCI's Community Cancer Centers Program (NCCCP) by establishing a single community-based research program. NCORP will be an integrated national network to: 1) design and conduct cancer prevention, control, and screening/post-treatment surveillance clinical trials; 2) design and conduct cancer care delivery research; 3) enhance patient and provider access to treatment and imaging clinical trials conducted under the reorganized National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN); and 4) integrate disparity research questions into clinical trials and cancer care delivery research.

NCORP will consist of three components, each with its own FOA: NCORP Research Bases (covered by this FOA); NCORP Community Sites; and NCORP Minority/Underserved Community Sites.

The NCORP Research Bases will design and conduct cancer prevention, control, and screening/post-treatment surveillance clinical trials and studies on cancer care delivery as well as manage and analyze the data and report the research results.
