BSA Approves Plan to Expand SEER Infrastructure, Funding, and Research Support Capacity

 

The NCI Board of Scientific Advisors approved a proposal to expand the infrastructure and capacity of the SEER program, including introducing registries designed specifically to support cancer research projects, an increase of the program’s overall budget, and moving toward a more advanced, uniform data management system.

The new structure of the surveillance program would create core registries, selected through a competition of the U.S. central cancer registries, which would then collect the most comprehensive data to be used for SEER statistics and public use.

These core registries would be the equivalent of the current SEER program, said Lynne Penberthy, associate director of the NCI Surveillance Research Program, during her presentation of the proposal to the board March 29.
