NCI Director Dr. Sharpless will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on cancer care and research, including the decrease in the accrual to clinical trials. He will also address how NCI plans to move forward to ensure cancer research progress, how the cancer community has already stepped up, and ways that NCI has responded to COVID-19 including modifications to the clinical trial processes, a Tocilizumab compassionate use study, and a national COVID-19 natural history study.

Join Us to Learn More About NCCAPS
NCI recently launched a national, longitudinal study of COVID-19 in people with cancer. The NCI COVID-19 in Cancer Patients Study (NCCAPS) will help scientists answer key questions about COVID-19’s impact on cancer patients, as well as cancer’s impact on the course of COVID-19.
We invite you to join us in June for an informational presentation. Click here to be notified of this future session.
