SWOG is a global cancer research community that designs and conducts publicly funded clinical trials. We've been around since 1956, and have saved more than 3 million years of life by testing new treatments, new prevention strategies, and new ways to care for those who survive cancer.

You're a big part of our success. Trial participants - all public volunteers - make our work possible. So does federal funding from the National Cancer Institute. Our public charity, The Hope Foundation, has raised millions of dollars from people and organizations who support cancer research.

Thank you for visiting and learning more about our work.
