Virtual Pooled Registry Cancer Linkage System (VPR‐CLS)

The Virtual Pooled Registry Cancer Linkage System (VPR-CLS) is a one-stop-shop designed to efficiently connect researchers with multiple cancer registries, thereby increasing access to, linkage with, and use of this valuable source of cancer surveillance information. The project is coordinated by the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR) and funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The VPR-CLS is currently in the development and testing phase and is progressing with input from national partners, researchers, and central registry staff.
