The North American Thyroid Cancer Survivorship Study (NATCSS)

NATCSS, directed by Institute member Dr. Brisa Aschebrook-Kilfoy, is a longitudinal study of quality of life outcomes for thyroid cancer survivors that includes participants recruited at the UChicago as well as using a multi-institutional recruitment network. Thus far, survey data has been collected on nearly 3,000 participants using an electronic invitation and survey. Biospecimens (both blood spots and saliva) have been collected on a subset of participants on-site and through the mail.
