Oncological Sciences Center

Cancer Research Advocate Program

Purdue University's Oncological Sciences Center is launching a cancer advocacy network to advance research for cancer prevention and treatment and to support the sample collection effort at IU Health Arnett (IUHA) for the Cancer Care Engineering colorectal cancer discovery clinical trial.

Researchers at Purdue and IU Health Arnett have partnered with Research Advocacy Network to educate the public about the role they can play in cancer research. Community advocates are critical to providing information to their friends and neighbors explaining what it means to be part of a clinical trial.

If you would like to contribute to the success of the medical research being conducted by IU Health Arnett and Purdue, below is the link for your to fill out the form.  You will have opportunites in a variety of areas for the colorectal cancer study to start soon and to be involved with future research studies and other activities.  We will provide you with all the information you need through orientation sessions and supporting materials.

YES, I would like to volunteer...
