History

Cancer Alliance of Nebraska (CAN), formerly the Missouri Valley Cancer Consortium, was founded in 1993. Since our inception, our network of clinics and hospitals has expanded to meet the needs of cancer patients and our physician researchers. Through the successful collaboration of our research team and the support of physicians, clinics, and hospitals across Nebraska, to date CAN has administered 725 cancer clinical trials impacting over 8000 patients right here in Nebraska.

In 2006, CAN named Dr. Gamini Soori Principal Investigator with the responsibility of overseeing CAN’s network of physician researchers and conducting promising new clinical trials. Under his leadership, new physician researchers have joined CAN and the program has expanded across the State.
