Canadian Kidney Cancer Information System (CKCis)

The Canadian Kidney Cancer Information System (CKCis) is an access-restricted website where data on kidney cancer patients is collected from across Canada. This information will be used by Canadian health specialists in their research efforts to refine and improve treatment and management of kidney cancer.

You might have already been approached by your physician about CKCis. If not, and you are being treated or followed at one of these sites, we would like to invite you to contact us to find out more about how you can help answer important kidney cancer research questions by anonymously including your medical information in the database.

Please rest assured that all of the data on CKCis is entered in a way that the information is anonymous and you cannot be identified once the information is entered into the system. Additionally, many security measures are in place to ensure your data remains confidential. For more information please contact the CKCis project manager, Ranjena Maloni, at:
