Partners in Discovery for Total Cancer Care

The Partners in Discovery for Total Cancer Care protocol collects blood and tissue samples, including associated demographic and clinical data (survey data, medical records data, cancer registry data, and other related data), from thousands of patients with cancer or at risk of having cancer. Additionally, the ORIEN AVATAR program collects paired tumor and non-tumor tissue for whole exome sequencing and RNA sequencing. We’ll work with you and the IRB to set up your study.

What Does ORIEN Do?

The Partners in Discovery team uses information from thousands of patient volunteers to discover:
  • Why some cancer treatments only work for certain patients
  • How to use information about genes and mutations to develop new cancer treatments
  • Easier ways to diagnose specific types of cancer
