Precision Cancer Survivorship Cohort

In order to move the field forward, we must move away from a “one size fits all” approach to cancer survivorship.

Precision Cancer Survivorship Cohort Logo

The Precision Cancer Survivorship Cohort leverages many data resources, including the OneFlorida Clinical Research Consortium to support investigations designed to understand and inform more personalized approaches to cancer survivorship, with a focus on accelerated aging and access to care.

Our goal is to establish a highly collaborative cancer survivorship research infrastructure across Florida.

Data from participants will be used to design personalized interventions targeting issues faced by cancer survivors.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type(s) of data will be collected?

During the study, following types of data will be collected:

  • Electronic health record
  • Administrative claims
  • Patient-reported surveys
  • Biologic specimens (saliva to collect DNA)

What, specifically, are the aims of this study?

Our study aims to examine risk and protective factors associated with:

  • Accelerated aging, including frailty, resilience and telomere length
  • Access to care and engagement in survivorship, primary and specialty care, and emergency department and urgent care use.

Who can participate in this study?

Any person who has been diagnosed with any type of cancer at any age and is currently over the age of 18 can participate. Participants will:

  • Complete a survey annually
  • Undergo a saliva specimen collection for biomarker analysis and optional banking
