Clinical Cancer Genetics Program
The Clinical Cancer Genetics Program (CCG) is an academic unit within the Human Cancer Genetics Program under the auspices of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute and The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center. CCG provides comprehensive risk assessments, cancer genetic counseling and clinical cancer genetic consultation to approximately 200 families each year. Most families are residents of Ohio, but patients also come from neighboring states, and other states and countries.
CCG actively collaborates 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 IRB-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.
