Welcome to the SWOG website

SWOG is a worldwide network of researchers that design and conduct cancer clinical trials. The group's goal is to change medical practice so it improves the lives of people with cancer. SWOG trials test new ways to diagnose and treat cancer, as well as prevent it. SWOG researchers also study ways to improve the care cancer patients receive, and improve quality of life for both patients and survivors.

National Clinical Trials Network

SWOG has been awarded a grant by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a member of the NCI National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN).

SWOG has also been awarded a grant by the NCI as a member of the National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Program (NCORP).

If you are not a member of SWOG, check out our Visitors pages, which contain information about our history and leadership, how to join our group, our clinical trials, the published results of those trials, and other information.
