With a network of over 3,700 physicians
extending across the U.S. and into Canada and Puerto Rico, the
Southwest Oncology Group is one of the largest of the Cooperative
Groups supported by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Recognizing
the growing need for an infusion of new investigators into the ranks of
cancer researchers, the Southwest Oncology Group initiated this
innovative program in 1999 with generous support from Ortho Biotech
Oncology through The Hope Foundation.
