  • GAME-ON & OncoArray: An International Collaboration to Discover Cancer Genetic Risk Factors (Video)

    "GAME-ON & OncoArray: An International Collaboration to Discover Cancer Genetic Risk Factors," describes how the OncoArray Network investigates the genetic architecture and mechanisms underlying cancers of the breast, ovary, prostate, colorectum, and lung. DCEG Director Stephen Chanock, M.D., was interviewed for the video. The Genetic Associations and Mechanisms in Oncology (GAME-ON) initiative was launched in 2010, jointly supported by the NCI Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences and the Division of Cancer Biology. The overall goal was to foster an intra-disciplinary and collaborative approach to the translation of promising research leads deriving from the initial wave of cancer genome-wide association studies (GWAS).
