Title: The Cancer Research Network (CRN): a resource for epidemiologic and health services research within integrated health care systems

Host: Catherine Schairer, Ph.D., Staff Scientist
Biostatistics Branch, Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, National Cancer Institute

Description:  The Cancer Research Network (CRN) is an NCI-funded consortium of research groups affiliated with integrated health care delivery systems in the U. S.  Collectively, the component health systems of the CRN provide care to approximately 10 million individuals.  As of 2012, the CRN is funded as a research resource, meaning that it is available for collaborations with NCI and other non-CRN-affiliated investigators who wish to conduct research across the cancer continuum within these large, diverse patient populations.  Examples of recent research that has been conducted by the CRN will be highlighted, to illustrate the types of scientific questions that can be addressed in this setting.  Mechanisms for initiating collaborations with the CRN will also be discussed.
