After 35 years of providing cancer patients local access to clinical trials, we regret to inform you that the Nebraska Cancer Research Center (NCRC) has closed. A combination of lack of funding, along with an increasingly competitive healthcare environment, contributed to this decision.
We are no longer screening and enrolling patients to clinical trials. If you are interested in participating in a research study, please ask whether there are any research opportunities available at your oncologist's office. Our wig bank also closed, effective September 20, 2019. We are currently working with interested parties to find a new home for our wig bank. In the interim, if you need a wig, please call the American Cancer Society at (402)423-4888.
NCRC's model of community collaboration was unique and we were able to enroll thousands of cancer patients and volunteers to studies to help improve cancer treatment options, not only for those cancer patients currently seeking treatment but also for generations to come.
Thank you to Nebraska Hematology Oncology, PC, Southeast Nebraska Cancer Center, Bryan Health, CHI-St. Elizabeth, Cancer Alliance of Nebraska and Pathology Medical Services for your collaboration and support over the years. Also thanks to everyone who attended our "Colors of Hope" events and/or donated to NCRC to make our work possible. We are proud of what we've accomplished by working together.
