Dr. Jacquez and Dr. Goovaerts are presenting at the NAACCR Annual Conference

Location: Albuquerque Convention Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico

The conference will take place June 17 – 22, 2017, at the Albuquerque Convention Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The New Mexico Tumor Registry and NAACCR welcome health professionals, and students interested in cancer surveillance as well as professionals in research, and registry operations.

The theme for 2017 is: “Breaking Barriers in Cancer Surveillance.” The 2017 conference will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn from national experts in cancer surveillance, cancer registry operations, and cancer research. Sessions will explore the new era in cancer surveillance from multiple perspectives in North America. We are also planning a special day focused on the Registry of the Future prior to the conference. Information on this special day will be made available later in 2016.

Track 3: Registry of the Future: Role and purpose: What is our changing role into the future

Title: Towards an integration of the genome and exposome with cancer registry data


To what extent should cancer registries be integrated with individual-level data on the human exposome and genome?  This presentation will explore this question within the framework of an ongoing contract from the National Cancer Institute “METRIC Software to Measure Cancer Health Environments” and a research proposal (in development) "HEO: Human Exposome Observatory".  Does the future of cancer registries include the provision of individual-level cancer data with a person's exposome history and genome?  

Presentation Objectives

Exploration and development of a possible future cancer registry concept that will accelerate the pace of human subjects research by providing linked and validated data on individual level cancer outcomes, exposure histories, and genomic data.
