The Cancer and Aging Research Group (CARG) is a national consortium of geriatric oncology investigators. The goal of this group is to join geriatric oncology researchers across the nation in a collaborative effort to design and implement clinical trials in older adults in order to improve the care of older adults with cancer, as well as to promote the development of academic geriatric oncologists who will continue to sustain the field of geriatric oncology.
This collaborative, interdisciplinary group (consisting of oncologists, geriatricians, fellows, nurses, social workers, specialists in rehabilitation medicine, basic scientists, biostatisticians, and patient advocates) meets every 2 weeks on a conference calls to discuss research, career development, health policy, and other scholarly opportunities in aging and cancer. To learn more about our biweekly CARG calls and other events, please visit the Events page.
The mission of the Cancer and Aging Research Group is to join geriatric oncology researchers across the nation in a collaborative effort of designing and implementing clinical trials to improve the care of older adults with cancer.
Dr. Hurria’s favorite proverb was “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” We welcome all to join us so we can go far together in achieving our collective goal of improving the care of older adults with cancer. The only requirement for membership is the desire to help older adults with cancer.
