Georgia CORE is a member of the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG), a national Cooperative Group supported by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The Georgia CORE-GOG Consortium provides an important opportunity for gynecologic oncologists across the state. This endeavor gives Georgia CORE an opportunity to demonstrate the feasibility of implementing an inclusive, high-quality statewide membership within a national Cooperative Group and is consistent with Georgia CORE’s mission to improve the quality of cancer care by strengthening clinical research.
Four organizations completed the required site application and clinical trial infrastructure evaluation visits for inclusion in the Georgia CORE-GOG Consortium.
