About the Registry
The Metropolitan New York Registry is a registry of families with a history of breast and/or ovarian cancer. The data and biospecimens donated by more than 8,000 high-risk families are being used by cancer researchers to identify new avenues for prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer. With the help of thousands of families around the world – possibly including yours – the Registry is contributing to our growing understanding of breast cancer.
Located at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University, the Registry is one of twelve international registries in the National Cancer Institute’s program of Cancer Family Registries for Breast and Colon Cancer Studies.
