The URCC NCORP Research Base, formerly known as University of Rochester Cancer Center Community Clinical Oncology Research Base (URCC CCOP), was the first NCI-funded CCOP Research Base housed within an academic cancer center in the country. This Research Base has been funded continuously since 1983 and has focused exclusively on cancer control for the past 25 years; but now the focus is evolving towards cancer care delivery research. The URCC serves as a Research Base for NCI’s Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) applicant institutions.  Through its development and growth, it has attracted a research-oriented community of investigators pursuing CCOP alliance.  The purpose of the URCC NCORP Research Base is to facilitate the development, conduct, quality assurance, monitoring and evaluation of clinical trials in the area of cancer control to community-based institutions participating in the NCI Community Oncology Research Program.  The emphasis of this Research Base is to enhance  investigator-initiated research.
