How the CPMC Study Works
After providing consent and a saliva sample for DNA analysis, participants activate their personal CPMC web portal accounts and complete detailed online health questionnaires. Specimens are then genotyped in Coriell's Genotyping and Microarray Center using Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)-certified genotyping platforms. CPMC participants are subsequently notified via email that they have access to personalized risk reports identifying genetic variant results, and when possible, non-genetic risk factors, for diseases and drug response. Study participants can decide whether or not to view each potentially actionable condition, as approved by the Informed Cohort Oversight Board (ICOB). Study participants and their physicians can contact â€“ at no-cost â€“ CPMC genetic counselors to discuss their results. Participants are encouraged to share their risk report information with their physicians and complete outcome surveys that will contribute to the evidence needed to determine the utility of genomic information in clinical care. Through the CPMC web portal, participants are also made aware of ancillary research studies in which they may be eligible to participate.
The Coriell research study is currently enrolling participants through partnerships with the United States Air Force and the Fox Chase Cancer Center. Eligibility requirements and study procedures may vary slightly. Click on the logos for cohort-specific study information.
