About the NCI at Frederick
The NCI at Frederick works with its collaborators and partners to develop faster and less expensive ways of turning laboratory discoveries into new diagnostic tests and treatments for cancer and AIDs.
FNLCR is a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) operated by
Leidos Biomedical Research, Inc., for the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The FNLCR provides quick response capabilities and meets special long-term research
and development needs for NCI that cannot be met as effectively by existing in-house
or contractor resources. Visit the FNLCR website to get more information
on Collaborations, Technology Transfer, Business Opportunities and Outreach.
The FNLCR also hosts several laboratories at the Advanced Technology Research Facility at Riverside Research Park
CCR is home to more than 250 scientists and clinicians working in intramural research
at NCI. CCR is organized into over 50 branches and laboratories, each one grouping
scientists with complementary interests. CCR's investigators are basic, clinical,
and translational scientists who work together to advance our knowledge of cancer
and AIDS and to develop new therapies against these diseases. CCR investigators
collaborate with scientists at the more than 20 other Institutes and Centers of
the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as well as with extramural scientists in
academia and industry.
Visit the CCR website to get more information
on Research, Training and Clinical Trials.
The NCI at Frederick has two main administrative offices: The Office of Scientific Operations and the Management
Operations Support Branch.
Office of Scientific Operations (OSO)
The OSO serves as the NCI Project Office for the Operations and Technical Support (OTS), Computer & Statistical
Services (C&SS), and Scientific Library contracts. It is the focal point for development and coordination of contact
and contractor requirements. This Office also provides overall scientific administrative management, as well as
program planning, for the NCI at Frederick. More at: The NCI at Frederick OSO Page.
Management Operations Support Branch (MOSB)
The MOSB (Office of Management, NCI) plans, directs and coordinates the contract and business management activities
of the NCI at Frederick. More at: The NCI at Frederick MOSB Page.
All visitors must enter through the main Fort Detrick Army facility gates. Our Visitor's

Since its establishment in 1972, the NCI at Frederick has become an internationally
recognized center of scientific excellence. This has been the result of the coordinated
efforts of Government scientists and the many contractors working
to achieve rapid progress in the race to cure cancer and AIDS.
