The Cancer Research of Wisconsin and Northern Michigan (CROWN) Consortium has received a $5 million grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to improve cancer patient care in Wisconsin and Michigan. The $5 million, 6-year term will ensure that CROWN Consortium can improve patient access to more leading-edge clinical trials.
The CROWN Consortium

Principal Investigator Comment
Dr. Anthony Jaslowski, Principal Investigator of the CROWN Consortium and Green Bay Oncology physician at HSHS St. Vincent Hospital Cancer Centers, reports “Clinical trials help us to better understand new ways to treat, diagnose and prevent cancer.” He continued, “Standard cancer treatments that are used today around the world are a result of past clinical trials and research. This grant, which the CROWN Consortium is honored to receive, could help us all to advance care not only locally but around the globe.”
