Centers of Excellence
Initiatives
  • The Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis (DCTD) is working in close collaboration with CCR to reinvigorate cancer drug development at NCI. The NCI Experimental Therapeutics (NExT) Program combines the DCTD's expertise in anticancer drug development with CCR’s dynamic in-house research program and our state-of-the-art facilities at the NIH Clinical Center.

    The goal of the NExT Program is to shave up to 1 year off the typical drug 10- to 12-year drug development cycle. MORE . . .
