The Children’s Oncology Group
 
The Children’s Hospital at Saint Peter’s University Hospital is a member institution of The Children’s Oncology Group (COG).  COG is a group offering clinical trials supported by the National Cancer Institute. It is a collaborative team comprised of 9,000 experts in childhood cancer at more than 200 leading children’s hospitals, universities, and cancer centers across the globe.  This includes locations in North America, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
More than 30 clinical trials are currently open through The Children’s Oncology Group. These trials include treatment for many types of pediatric cancers, studies focused on the underlying biology of these diseases, and trials involving supportive care and survivorship.
The Children’s Oncology Group research has helped to turn childhood cancer from a nearly incurable disease 50 years ago to one with a combined 5-year survival rate of 80% today.  The mission is to cure all children and adolescents with cancer, as well as reduce both the short and long-term obstacles of cancer treatments.  Finally, COG wishes to determine the causes, and find ways to prevent, childhood cancer.
