Looking for World Class Cancer Research Trials in Springfield, Missouri?

Cancer Research for the Ozarks (CRO), also known as the Ozarks Regional Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) was founded in 1985 by a grant from the National Institute of Health, National Cancer Institute (NCI). It is one of 48 CCOPs in the United States. Since most cancer patients are treated in the community setting, the program is designed to provide state of the art treatment protocols to community oncologists. The program was originally established as a cooperative venture of CoxHealth and Mercy and remains such today.
