The Connect for Cancer Prevention Study (“Connect”) is a new prospective cohort led by DCEG investigators. The cohort was designed to investigate the etiology of cancer and its outcomes, which may inform new approaches in precision prevention and early detection. During the seminar, we will provide an overview of the study design, governance, data sharing, and timeline as well as provide an update on key aspects of the study, including questionnaire and biomarker development among others.
