Impact of COG’s Research

The Children’s Oncology Group and its predecessor organizations have had a pivotal role in transforming childhood cancer from a virtually incurable disease 50 years ago to one with a combined 5-year survival rate of 80% today.  Since the merger, COG researchers have published well over one thousand research manuscripts in peer-reviewed scientific journals, and routinely present results of research at national and international meetings. COG is widely recognized as the premier collaborative research organization, having enrolled more children with cancer on clinical trials than any other organization in the world.
