Description: The NCI Cohort Consortium Symposium is jointly sponsored by the Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program (EGRP) of the NCI's Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS), and the NCI's Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG).

The objectives of the Symposium are to:
  • Identify opportunities and obstacles in combining multiple cross-disciplinary (and cross-institute) cohorts for power

  • Describe advantages and constraints of launching new "mega" cohorts

  • Identify issues in building and managing a portfolio of new cohorts across institutes
The Cohort Consortium is an extramural-intramural partnership formed by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to address the need for large-scale collaborations to pool the large quantity of data and biospecimens necessary to conduct a wide range of cancer studies. The Consortium includes investigators responsible for more than 40 high-quality cohorts involving more than 4 million people. Through its collaborative network of investigators, the Consortium provides a coordinated, interdisciplinary approach to tackling important scientific questions, economies of scale, and opportunities to quicken the pace of research. The Symposium will focus on accomplishments of the Cohort Consortium and presentations of experiences across different NIH Institutes in combining and designing cohorts for power.
