The Familial Ovarian Cancer Registry
Who We Are
The Familial Ovarian Cancer Registry was established in 1981 by M. Steven Piver, M.D., former chairman of the Department of Gynecologic Oncology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
The Registry is pursuing research into causes of familial cancer, through the combined efforts of investigators at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI), Stanford University School of Medicine, Cambridge University, University College at London, National Cancer Institute, SUNY at Buffalo, and Myriad Genetics Corp.
The more data the Registry obtains, the more it can learn about familial ovarian cancer. Research conducted by the Registry will also help the scientific and medical communities learn more about ovarian cancer that seems to run in families.
