Groups Have No Budgets as NCTN Begins Work March 1
Two years ago, NCI officials made a promise to increase the budget of the cooperative groups program by $25.6 million.
The boost, which was approved by the NCI Board of Scientific Advisors, was part of an effort to revamp the groups inspired by a report from the Institute of Medicine.
On March 1, as the cooperative group program officially becomes the NCI National Clinical Trials Network, new money will not be a part of the transformation.
