Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of the Children's Oncology Group is to cure all children and adolescents with cancer, reduce the short and long-term complications of cancer treatments, and determine the causes and find ways to prevent childhood cancer.

The Children's Oncology Group partners with research scientists from around the world in our efforts to understand the causes of cancer and find more effective treatments for the children we care for. In addition to disease specific research, COG conducts studies in developmental therapeutics (new cancer drug development), supportive care, epidemiology, stem cell transplantation, behavioral sciences and survivorship.

The Children's Oncology Group has more than 10,000 individual members and over 200 member institutions worldwide, with nearly 100 active clinical-translational trials open at any given time. These trials include frontline treatment for many types of childhood cancers, studies aimed at determining the underlying biology of these diseases, and trials involving new and emerging treatments, supportive care, and survivorship. The member institutions that perform the frontline work of our research mission enroll eligible subjects and families who agree to participate in our research. Our studies not only explore the entire clinical-translational research spectrum of childhood cancers, from the molecular basis of a disease, through phase 1 to 3 clinical trials, biomarker discovery, extending into survivorship issues, but also the critically important challenges that pediatric cancer patients confront, including neurobehavioral consequences of disease and therapy.

The Children's Oncology Group fully recognizes that a cure is not enough; the lifelong issues that survivors face are of paramount importance. To that end, we endeavor to not only resolve the immediate risks that cancer poses to children, but also to mitigate the long-term, adverse effects that harsh and oftentimes toxic treatment regimens pose to their health after remission.
