The Clinical Cancer Genetics Program (CCG) provides comprehensive risk assessments, cancer genetic counseling and clinical cancer genetic consultation to approximately 1000 families each year. Most families are residents of Ohio, but patients also come from other states and countries. Click here to see an example of the genetic testing process.
Faculty in CCG actively collaborate with other clinicians in the OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center in cases that may have a genetic component. Further, it serves as the liaison between the patients and researchers of the Division of Human Genetics assuring that appropriate clinical cancer genetics consultation are available to the patients and Institutional Review Board approved protocols are in effect for cancer susceptibility gene testing either in the clinical or research setting. Together with the Division of Human Cancer Genetics, CCG administers the germline tissue and DNA sample bank, which will eventually be linked to a comprehensive clinicopathologic database.
