Participate in MCC research studies

Research Overview

We have recruited over 1500 patients for a longitudinal study in which we follow their disease status over time, together with obtaining blood and tissue samples. These cases and specimens have provided great insight into MCC causes and new therapies. This resource will continue to be important for MCC researchers well into the future.

Current Research Focus

Currently, we are focusing our recruiting efforts on several existing and planned trials to augment the immune response in MCC.

We are very interested in receiving blood from MCC patients who are planning to have their first-ever dose of immune therapy (such as Bavencio, Keytruda, or Opdivo). If you are interested in participating, please call (206) 221-4594 or send an email to [email protected].
