Children's Oncology Group (COG)
We Partner with the World's Childhood Cancer Experts
Children's Hospital at Erlanger a member of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), the world’s largest organization devoted exclusively to childhood and adolescent cancer research. Our collaboration with COG connects our program and patients with more than 8,000 pediatric oncology experts worldwide and the latest clinical-translational trials. COG members work to develop new treatments and reduce long-term effects of cancer and related treatments.
Thanks to researchers working together through COG, the outlook for children with cancer has improved dramatically. Fifty years ago, children’s cancer was virtually incurable. Today, the combined 5-year survival rate for all cancers is 80%.
