Cohort studies

Cohort studies give researchers access to ethically collected clinical samples and associated clinical data

We are home to many large group (or cohort) studies, which aid the work of researchers at Peter Mac and across the world.  

Cohort studies collect biospecimens (such as blood samples) and survey data from people with cancer to build large open-access resources for innovative research projects. Some studies also collect information from people who have never had cancer.

As our patient, we may ask you if you wish to participate in one of these studies without referral, to benefit cancer research.
