If you are used to using the term “NCI-Frederick” to identify your work location, please note that this name has been officially retired. This change was made to ensure consistency with the naming conventions used by other NCI locations, such as NCI at Shady Grove.

Please be aware of the distinction between the terms “NCI at Frederick” and “the NCI Campus at Frederick,” as follows:

  • Use the term “NCI at Frederick” to refer inclusively to all the component government and contractor entities in Frederick [Leidos Biomedical Research; the Office of Scientific Operations (OSO); Management Operations Support Branch (MOSB); the NCI Center for Cancer Research (CCR); Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG); Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis (DCTD); and Data Management Services (DMS)].
  • Use the term “NCI Campus at Frederick” to refer exclusively to the 68 acres within the perimeter of Fort Detrick. 

Please use the appropriate term when crafting e-mails about events taking place at one of NCI’s Frederick locations. If you are unsure about which term to use, you may opt for “NCI at Frederick” since this is the most inclusive.
