CancerProgress.Net is developed and curated by the American Society of Clinical Oncology, which represents more than 35,000 physicians who treat people with cancer and conduct clinical research.

This site was launched in 2011 to mark the 40th anniversary of the U.S. National Cancer Act, which led to major new investments in cancer research and significant increases in cancer survival. The site is intended to provide a dynamic and interactive history of progress against cancer, expert perspective on remaining challenges and other useful tools.

The central feature of the site – the interactive Cancer Progress Timeline – was developed under the guidance of an editorial board of 20 of the nation's leading oncologists, and will be updated over time with additional cancer types, significant new advances and helpful videos, links and images.

We hope you find CancerProgress.Net useful. It is intended to be a "living" tool, and we welcome your feedback on how we can make it even better. To provide input, contact us at any time.
