Associated Research Projects

SNPs for chemo-responsiveness

Georgia Chenevix-Trench is carrying out studies aimed at identifying SNPs associated with response to chemotherapy in ovarian cancer. If you have detailed clinical data (including residual disease, first line chemotherapy and progression free survival) and at least three years of follow up of at least 200 incident, invasive cases, please contact her if you may be interested in participating in these studies.



Pathology of ovarian cancer

Susan Ramus is leading the Ovarian Tumour Tissue Array (OTTA) consortium. These tissue microarray (TMA) studies will be used to investigate whether associations between SNPs and ovarian cancer risk vary by tumour characteristics. We will also determine if candidate genes play a role in ovarian cancer. Large numbers of cases will allow for stratification by histological subtype. Case only studies are also welcome to participate in these projects. If you have ovarian cancer TMAs or have access to formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue blocks and require assistance with making TMAs please contact her to participate in these studies.
