The North Central Cancer Treatment Group (NCCTG) was founded in 1977 by pioneering physicians from the north central region of the United States and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. These physicians saw a need to bring high-quality cancer care and research to the communities where patients live and receive most of their medical care. To achieve this goal, they formed a cancer clinical trials cooperative group. This cooperative group allows promising scientific ideas developed at Mayo Clinic to be tested in many communities throughout the NCCTG network, allowing broad access to the latest therapies.

NCCTG's primary objective is to improve
the survival and quality of life for patients with cancer.
