Translational Research Working Group (TRWG)

The Translational Research Working Group (TRWG) was established in the summer of 2005 to conduct a discussion with the broader cancer research community and develop recommendations about how the National Cancer Institute (NCI) can best organize its investment to further “translational research.“

Over the span of two years, the TRWG reviewed NCI’s current intramural and extramural translational research portfolio (within the scope of the TRWG mission), facilitated broad community input, invited public comment, and recommended ways to improve and integrate efforts. The ultimate goal was to accelerate progress toward improving the health of the nation and cancer patient outcomes.
