Familial Cancer RegistrySchedule
Investigators wishing to use FCR services must complete a Request Form and must also sign a Data/Specimen Use Agreement after reviewing the FCR consent form (please contact the Manager for forms). Both the Request Form and Data/Specimen Use Agreement must include an original signature, and can be faxed to the FCR Manager at 202-687-8444 with a cover sheet attached.
All requests must be approved by the FCR Director. If an investigator requests non-renewable resources (i.e. tissue) then the request must be approved by the Tissue Review Committee, and additional information may be requested from the investigator in preparation for the review. Additionally, requests for modifications and/or additions to FCR data collection instruments may require the approval of the FCR Advisory Committee.Â Investigators in need of help with the design, conduct, analysis and interpretation of their research will be referred to the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Shared Resource for consultation.
Investigators are encouraged to contact either the FCR Director or the FCR Manager prior to submitting a formal request to ensure that the data and/or specimens that the investigator needs are available through the FCR.
The resources of the FCR are available to Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center investigators and to non-Lombardi investigators provided the resources will be used for cancer research. Requests will be considered for both funded and unfunded research.
