cip-cirp (Overview)


The National Cancer Institute (NCI) will host the Co-clinical Imaging Research Resource Program (CIRP) Annual Virtual Meeting 2021. Join us on June 16 - 17, 2021 via Webex Meeting held by NCI to learn about how quantitative imaging methods are optimized to improve the quality of imaging results for co-clinical trials of adult and pediatric cancers. 

The CIRP network was formed in 2018 based on a trans-NCI initiative, with joint effort of Cancer Imaging Program at Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis, Division of Cancer Biology and Division of Cancer Prevention. The mission is to advance the practice of precision medicine by establishing consensus-based best practices for co-clinical imaging and developing optimized state-of-the-art translational quantitative imaging methodologies to enable disease detection, risk stratification, and assessment/prediction of response to therapy.
