NCI Cohort Consortium


The NCI Cohort Consortium is an extramural-intramural partnership formed by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to address the need for large-scale collaborations to pool the large quantity of data and biospecimens necessary to conduct a wide range of cancer studies. Through its collaborative network of investigators, the Consortium provides a coordinated, interdisciplinary approach to tackling important scientific questions, economies of scale, and opportunities to quicken the pace of research.

Annual Meetings

The 2023 Cohort Consortium Annual Meeting was held on October 11-13, 2023, at NCI’s Shady Grove campus in Rockville, MD as a hybrid in-person/virtual format.
