View the Webinar

Abstract: The Cancer Moonshot℠ Biobank is a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-sponsored study that aims to accelerate cancer research through the collection of longitudinal biospecimens from cancer patients receiving standard of care therapy. The Biobank study incorporates several approaches to facilitate diverse participant engagement, including return of tumor biomarker test results directly to patients and providers, use of e-Consent, local engagement, and an interactive participant and provider website. The ELSI mini-symposium included an introduction to the Biobank study, a presentation on ELSI issues related to engaging diverse populations in biobanking, and a presentation of a prior multidimensional ELSI research study embedded in the NIH Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) project.
