Greetings fellow CCOP (at least for another 2 days—but who is counting),

We got what should be a winning score on our NCORP research base application (31 which was, we think, fourth best among ALL research bases; I say ‘ think’ because there is one research base whose score nobody seems able to find out).

So we’re planning on being in business as NCORP with the fond hopes that we and all of you will see each other’s friendly faces around our table  at the meeting 5-6 Sept when we’ll be officially kicking off our next 5 years together.

Below is a table of what our portfolio currently looks like:  we’re finishing up Karen’s EXCAP study / increased follow-up has been approved for Michelle’s Cognitive protocol / Oxana’s limited site pilot (BBT) is accruing nicely with plans for a protocol to follow on if this feasibility pilot shows feasibility / Paul’s study of accrual to trials is open and accruing /  Supriya’s GAP-70+ and COACH studies will be activated this summer / Luke’s vitamin D R-03 and Karen’s YOCAS R-01 are approved and we’re working on implementation prior to the meeting.  NCI allowed us to keep working on these protocols because they are based on NIH or PCORI approved grants or were already in the NCI approval pipeline.
