Addressing Critical Issues


The Alliance puts the patient at the center of everything we do. By convening scientific community leaders and patients together to advance and build knowledge, we are more efficiently addressing critical issues for patients’ direct benefit.

Bringing the Patient Experience to Experts

As a patient-focused organization, the Alliance offers opportunities to connect researchers from across the scientific community with real-time patient insights. We believe in ensuring research studies, clinical trial approaches, and program development all center on the needs of the patient and their family.

Focusing the Conversation 

As the largest and most impactful colorectal cancer advocacy community, a core activity of the Alliance’s research efforts center around convening all of the stakeholders who advance science, knowledge, and solutions, as well as those who are influencing community practices, guidance, and policy that improves the research environment. Convening ensures that we all operate collaboratively, enhance efficiency and minimize waste — ultimately getting us to a cure faster. 

Our Five-Year Plan

The Alliance engaged in an intensive analysis and collaborative State of the Science Summit in 2021 to understand the current landscape of colorectal cancer innovation and opportunity as well as prepare for our five-year scientific strategy.

More coming soon.
