The Dunedin Colorectal Cohort is overseen by a Governance Committee comprising the following members:

  • Executive Group: two clinicians and two scientists across multiple schools/divisions at the University of Otago.
  • Māori/Pacific representative
  • Lay/patient advocate
  • Two additional researchers

The broad purpose of this group is to manage the Dunedin colorectal cancer cohort. The roles of the group are:

  1. To provide a resource for fundamental and applied colorectal cancer research
  2. To provide cross-discipline data for a cohort of colorectal cancer patients
  3. To ensure continuity across long term research teams and programmes

The responsibilities of the group are to manage the physical patient samples and associated data, and to provide a mechanism for researchers to access and share tissue samples and associated data.
