Cancer and Leukemia Group B

Summary:

The Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB) is a national clinical research group sponsored by the National Cancer Institute, with the Central Office headquartered at the University of Chicago and Statistical Center located at Duke University. Founded in 1956, the CALGB brings together clinical oncologists and laboratory investigators to develop better treatments for cancer. CALGB has grown exponentially over the years into a national network of 26 university medical centers, more than 200 community hospitals and more than 3,000 oncology specialists who collaborate in clinical research studies. These studies aim to reduce morbidity and mortality from cancer, relate biological characteristics of cancer to clinical outcomes, and develop new strategies for the early detection and prevention of cancer.
