Title of Collaborative Activity:

NCI/FDA/HRSA/CMS Task Force on Cancer Diagnostic Devices (CD2) for Near-Patient Use

The Task Force and Initiative will address cancer types for geographically isolated, medically underserved, and otherwise vulnerable communities, with emphasis to: 1) Cancer types with clear, existing need and highly prevalent, for example cervical cancer; and 2) Cancer types that have evidence of future need from emerging at-risk populations, for example liver cancers derived from nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).
