Westat received the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI’s) Director's Award for the Network Accrual Core Team (Network ACT) and promoting collaborations on November 8, 2018.

The honor spotlights Westat researchers’ work with the NCI's National Cancer Trials Network (NCTN) and Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP). It recognizes Westat’s work, “for outstanding leadership and teamwork to collaboratively address accrual barriers to NCTN and NCORP clinical trials,” according to NCI.

The award is for the Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU) team’s contributions to coordinating and participating in the Network ACT. The team includes NCI staff and Vinita Gotting, Martha Hering, Lena Muwakki, Carl Riley, and Demetrius Williams from Westat.

  • Increase cross-Network awareness of NCTN-sponsored clinical trials
  • Provide a forum to discuss challenging studies
