CASE CCC IN THE NEWS
Cancer Patients Learn About 'Brain Mets'
The Treatment Option You May Be Missing
MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
Tissue and Blood-Based Research Survey
We are building the infrastructure to facilitate tissue and blood-based research using patients with cancer or high risk populations. To better assist you, we need your advice on what you want - tissue, clinical information, PHI, etc - so we can build the proper web-based access and request forms.
Please take the time to fill out a short questionnaire, even if you currently have an IRB approved tissue-based research project. The survey is available at: http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22AS2MTPW34.
We would like greater than 70% of Cancer Center members to respond, so if you don't you might find yourself receiving a few more emails on this topic!
See you at the retreat, where the results of the survey will be presented!
Thank you for your time,
Stan Gerson, MD
