About the Registry
The Colon Cancer Family Registry at Mayo Clinic is part of an international research consortium for investigators who conduct population-based and clinic-based interdisciplinary studies on the genetic and molecular epidemiology of colorectal cancer and its behavioral implications.
A central goal of the Colon Cancer Family Registry is the translation of colorectal cancer research to the clinical and prevention settings for the benefit of registry participants and the general public.
The Colon Cancer Family Registry has information and biospecimens contributed by more than 11,000 families across the spectrum of risk for colorectal cancer and from population-based controls or relative controls.
The Colon Cancer Family Registry at Mayo Clinic collects detailed information about study participants and their relatives to help create a resource that will be helpful to colorectal cancer researchers around the world.
The director of the Colon Cancer Family Registry is Noralane M. Lindor, M.D., a professor of medical genetics in the College of Medicine and Science at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The Colon Cancer Family Registry is affiliated with the Department of Health Sciences Research at Mayo Clinic.
