Discovering the causes of cancer and the means of prevention

Genetic Susceptibility

DCEG researchers actively investigate the role of common and uncommon inherited variations in the genetic code associated with risk of cancer. This work is carried out using biological samples from study participant and techniques like genome-wide association studies, whole genome scans, and new and emerging technologies and methods. Examples of studies include:

Brain
Melanoma
Ovary and Endometrium
  • Ovarian and Endometrial Cancer Case-Control Study in Poland

    A study of common inherited variation associated with risk of ovarian cancer, carried out using data and biospeciments from a population-based case-control study of ovarian and endometrial cancer conducted among female residents of Warsaw and Lodz (Poland).
