We invite health care providers and cancer researchers to learn about the multidisciplinary clinical and research programs at Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, one of only 40 National Cancer Institute (NCI) Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the country.
The Latest in Focus
Fighting ER+ Breast Cancer
ER+ breast cancer is especially difficult to treat because it develops a resistance to the anti-estrogen drugs usually used in treatment. A new NCCC clinical trial will test lab research that shows estrogen can induce and inhibit tumor growth.
Patient referrals are easy using our DHMC Physician Connection Center or by contacting a specific oncology group. We offer over 150 clinical trials for specific cancer types.
More than 250 active research projects are part of the Cancer Center's quest to cure cancer, understand its causes, and promote ways to prevent cancer before it starts. These projects are led by 135 cancer research scientists supported by more than $68 million in grants each year from federal and other sources.
Norris Cotton Cancer Center also provides cancer professionals with educational and career opportunities in patient care and scientific research.
