Metro Detroit area residents with cancer, and those throughout Michigan, have access to federally-funded cancer research studies thanks to a grant awarded to the Beaumont Cancer Institute. Beaumont is one of 34 community sites participating in the National Cancer Institute's Community Oncology Research Program, also known as NCORP.

NCORP replaces two previous National Cancer Institute community-based clinical research programs: the NCI Community Clinical Oncology Program (also referred to as CCOP) and the NCI Community Cancer Centers Program. Beaumont's Cancer Institute was a long-time participant in CCOP until the program was discontinued on May 31. The new program builds on the strengths of the previous programs and aims to better address the most pressing issues affecting the conduct and delivery of care in the communities across the nation.
