The National Cancer Institute (NCI)'s Council of Research Advocates (NCRA) will hold a meeting. The NCRA will provide advice to the NCI Director with respect to promoting research outcomes that are in the best interest of cancer patients. To this end, the NCRA will conduct these activities with the intent to identify new approaches, promote innovation, recognize unforeseen risks or barriers, and identify unintended consequences that could result from NCI decisions or actions. Additionally, the Committee will provide insight into enhancing input, optimizing outreach, and promoting strong collaborations, all with respect to non-scientist stakeholders.
More information is available via the NCI website.
