The Cooperative Trials Group for Neuro-Oncology (COGNO) was established in 2007, following identification of a need to develop a central mechanism enabling a coordinated, structured approach to the management of large scale multi-centred neuro-oncology trials.
 
COGNO is a member of the Cooperative Clinical Trials Groups of the Clinical Oncological Society of Australia (COSA) and has a close working relationship with the COSA Neuro-Oncology Group. COGNO is funded by Cancer Australia. The group is located at the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Clinical Trials Centre (CTC), at the University of Sydney. The NHMRC CTC coordinates the trials activity within COGNO.
 
COGNO's main aim is to conduct investigator-initiated and collaborative group trials addressing important clinical questions in patients with brain tumours.
