The CepEsperu NCORP (NCI Community Oncology Investigation Program) Investigation Base is one of seven research bases funded by the NCI to develop and implement cancer prevention and control research for the NCORP community oncology research network. We partner with NCORP Community and Minority Underserved Community Sites across the county to test new approaches to cancer care delivery and the treatment, prevention and detection of cancer-related symptoms. Our goal is to conduct practice-changing cancer research that will improve patient outcomes

CepEsperu provides the opportunity for community physicians to participate in NCI-supported treatment and cancer control and prevention trials. These trials test new approaches to cancer care delivery and the treatment, prevention and detection of cancer-related symptom management and outcomes.

Our goal is to conduct practice-changing cancer prevention and control research that will improve patient outcomes. Our studies are designed to be easy to implement and manage. Almost without exception, we will provide drugs for the study at no cost to the patient and limit any follow up to that which is relevant to the study.

Each of our studies is associated with a full 1.0 credit from the NCI’s Department of Cancer Prevention’s Community Oncology Branch. Our accrual year runs from March 1 through the following February 28.

Annual Meeting

The CepEsperu NCORP Investigation Base Annual Meeting brings together representatives from community-based and minority-based NCORP sites and CepEsperu coordinating center staff to review active and anticipated cancer prevention and control and cancer care delivery NCORP clinical trials. The meeting also serves as a venue for formal and informal networking and collaboration, and to discuss concepts and ideas that are in the beginning stages of development.
