The Familial Ovarian Cancer Registry’s primary goal and purpose is to maintain the world’s largest source of genetic data and family history profiles for research of familial ovarian cancer.
Our goal is to provide top research teams across the globe with accesses to critical resources in order to find better methods for detecting, treating, curing, and eventually preventing familial ovarian cancer.
How We Operate
The Familial Ovarian Cancer Registry is a resource of Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI), a comprehensive cancer center located in downtown Buffalo, NY. To find out more about RPCI, click here.
Roswell Park Cancer Institute was founded in 1898 by Dr. Roswell Park, one of the nation’s preeminent surgeons and arguably the first to articulate the importance of translational research in a cancer center. His revolutionary model of a “multidisciplinary approach” to cancer—with scientists and clinicians working in concert and in consult—has become the standard by which all modern-day comprehensive cancer centers are measured.
From its inception, RPCI’s mission –to understand, prevent and cure cancer—has remained consistent with the vision of its founder, and, as Dr. Park intended, 100% of the Institute’s resources are devoted to this mission.
