NRG Oncology Group

NRG Oncology brings together the unique and complementary research areas of the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP), the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) and the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG). NRG Oncology builds upon our more than 150 years of cumulative research experience to conduct practice defining, multi-institutional clinical trials resulting in the improved survival and quality of life of patients with cancer.

Several members of the department hold leadership positions, including Dr. Waggoner who is a member of several committees, and Nancy Fusco, RN who is Chairperson of the Protocol Working Group Mentorship Committee.
