The Colorectal Cancer Family Registry Cohort is an international consortium of six research institutes in North America and Australia working together to create a database of families with colorectal cancer.  From over 40,000 participants from 14,000 families, this cohort has collected detailed lifestyle information and biological samples.  These families have been recruited between 1998 and 2011 and will continue to be followed for health outcomes.  This data resource will support a rich variety of studies on the causes, prevention, and clinical management of colorectal cancer.
