Clinical Cancer Genetics Research Network (CCGCRN)
The Clinical Cancer Genetics Community Research Network (CCGCRN) is a large research group ofover 30collaborating sites in the United States and Mexico. The cornerstone of this network is the City of Hope Hereditary Cancer Research Registry (Molecular Genetic Studies in Cancer Patients and their Relatives; IRB# 96144), a prospective research registry protocol initiated at the City of Hope in 1996, by Principal Investigator Jeffrey Weitzel, MD. The registry serves as a biospecimen repository with personal and family medical history, psycho-social and clinical follow-up data, and 4-generation family pedigree. As members of the CCGCRN, research collaborators can use the message board and forums to post questions and communicate with other members in the network.
