Lighthouse Study

What is the Lighthouse Study About?

The purpose of this study is to collect blood samples and medical information to help develop and evaluate a blood test that can screen for many cancers from a single blood draw.  This test aims to find many different types of cancers, including but not limited to: lung, colorectal, ovarian, pancreatic, liver, bladder, stomach and esophageal cancers.

Researchers will collect study participants’ blood samples and look at medical information to look for biomarkers in the blood that show up when cancer is just starting to develop.  These findings from blood, your health, and medical history, will be used to develop this cancer screening blood test.


Current and former smokers aged 50-80 who are willing to have a blood test and chest CT scan.
