The Stacey Scott Lung Cancer Registry, located at Roswell Park, is a collaboration of 11 leading medical and research institutions from America, Canada and the Netherlands. The registry is the first common registry (collection) of biological samples and data on patients considered at high risk for lung cancer. The registry is named for Stacey Scott, a previously healthy, non-smoking 38-year-old who succumbed to lung cancer after a four-month battle in 2005.
Data collected for the registry will permit physicians and scientists to conduct research leading to important breakthroughs in early detection and treatment for lung cancer patients around the world. For more information on the registry, please visit www.StaceyRegistry.org.
