As a result of longstanding research strength, the Cancer Control & Survivorship program at UR Medicine’s Wilmot Cancer Institute has been selected to receive an $18.6 million, five-year grant for a leadership role in a nationwide clinical research network to investigate cancer-related side effects.

The National Cancer Institute award to Principal InvestigatorGary R. Morrow, Ph.D., M.S., is currently the largest investigator-initiated grant at the University of Rochester, and among the top five largest grants received by a UR Medical Center researcher in the past 10 years.

Wilmot is also one of only two cancer centers in the U.S. to be chosen by the NCI as a research hub for NCORP, which stands for the NCI Community Oncology Research Program. With the new NCORP funding, Morrow and his team will design and manage clinical studies that will be implemented nationwide. All of their work, which includes preparing manuscripts for publication in medical journals, revolves around supportive care for patients coping with side effects during and following cancer treatment.

NCORP PIs and Administrators,

Today begins the new era of NCORP.  We wanted to welcome everyone to the URCC NCORP Research Base, and congratulate you on being a survivor.  We are thankfully, all still in business and looking forward to continued successful collaboration.
We also want to provide you with an update of where we are with our research.  You can download a table of studies that are currently active or soon to be active, along with other information about each protocol here.  We have 5 active studies and 2 more that will be activated in the next couple months.  We will present updates on each of these studies at the annual meeting in September, as well as some new concepts that we are developing.
If you have not registered for the meeting yet, please do so ASAP.  The cutoff date for the conference room rate is August 18.  The registration form and meeting information are available here: 
Annual Meeting Registration.

You will be receiving an Affiliation Agreement in the mail next week that is signed by me.  You, as the PI, will need to sign it, keep a copy and send it back to URCC.  The address is under Jacque’s signature.

This communication has been emailed to each URCC-affiliated NCORP PI and Administrator.  Feel free to forward to other investigators and staff at your NCORP.  We look forward to seeing you again (or meeting some of you for the first time) at the September meeting.

On behalf of Dr. Gary Morrow, Director of the URCC NCORP Research Base

URCC13070: COACH protocol training information PDF Print E-mail
Written by Jacque Lindke

URCC13070 - COACH Logo

Training materials and resources are now available for URCC13070: COACH. Please note:  This study is very similar to URCC13059: GAP-70+, however, there are some key differences.  You will need to undergo a separate training for COACH regardless of whether or not you have done or will be doing the GAP-70+ training. You will NOT, however, be required to repeat the Geriatric Assessment portion of the training.
One important aspect of these two geriatric studies is that patients who are eligible for GAP-70+ will also be eligible for COACH, but not necessarily in reverse.  If a patient is eligible for and participates in both studies, you will receive credit for both studies.  That is, for one patient, you could potentially receive 1.0 credit for GAP-70+ and 1.3 credits for COACH (for patient and caregiver dyad).  The differences, similarities and overlap of the two studies will be covered as part of the COACH training.
