Genome-Wide Association Study of Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common cancer among people of European ancestry. The primary risk factor for SCC is sun exposure, but genetics also has a substantial role. To date, no published genome-wide association studies have been performed on cutaneous SCCs. We aim to conduct a genome-wide SNP association study of 6,179 participants within the Research Program in Genes and Environmental Health (RPGEH) cohort members diagnosed with a cutaneous SCC and 101,348 controls to search for new sequence variants that confer risk of cutaneous SCC.
