The GRYT Project brings research opportunities to cancer patients and caregivers who want to share their experience and make cancer care more receptive to patient needs. As a member of our community, you have the ability to opt in to The GRYT Project and choose the research projects in which you would like to participate. Your data will never be shared without your explicit approval and, through your participation, your experience will have a positive impact on the future of healthcare. Additionally, in most cases, you will be compensated for your participation.

Why Do We Do It?
GRYT Health was created by cancer survivors for patients and caregivers facing a cancer diagnosis. Our goal is to provide support and resources to improve experiences, while engaging our community in ground-breaking research opportunities that strengthen the role of the patient voice in healthcare decision-making.
How Do We Do It?
Through questionnaires, digital focus groups and patient journey research, the GRYT Project helps its partners better understand the patient and caregiver experience so that cancer care – from early-stage treatments through long-term survivorship – can be improved, positively impacting health outcomes.
You can think of GRYT as a mediator between the healthcare industry and patients. However, unlike other companies who cater to pharma needs, GRYT always puts patients and caregivers first because we are patients and caregivers ourselves.
Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies come to us when they need to understand the patient perspective and experience on everything from interacting with the healthcare system, to treatment, diagnosis, and post-treatment concerns and burdens. We integrate your experience into what they produce so that information is more tailored to patient needs, side effects and impacts of treatment are better understood, and, ultimately, cancer care and health outcomes are improved.
Metastatic Breast Cancer & Bone Health
Bone health and metastatic breast cancer survey. Share your experience to help improve bone health education for people living with metastatic breast cancer.
Participants are eligible if they:
- Are at least 18 years of age
- Reside in the United States
- Have been diagnosed with breast cancer that has spread to the bone (bone metastasis)
- Have been diagnosed within the last 3 years
The Follicular Lymphoma Patient Voice Project seeks to understand the burdens that FL patients face so that trials and treatments may be better adapted to each patient. A particular focus of the project is health equity--we want to hear from people who have been historically underrepresented in clinical trials, including racial minorities and rural communities. Compensation is $300 / €250 / £235 for a 1 hour interview and 2 hour focus group with other patients.
Active Clinical Trials
Projects From Our Partners
Fertility & Family-Building After Cancer
What are your options for building a family after cancer? The Roadmap to Parenthood study will help you learn about fertility and family-building options after cancer, and what you can do to plan for the future.
The study is for US women only. Participants will have access to a website that was developed for and with women affected by cancer and will be asked to complete three brief surveys over three months. This project is supported by the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
The GRYT Project FAQs
We fully believe in the power of the patient and caregiver voice. Through the integration of your experience into research projects, we can move healthcare forward. Our projects focus on compiling information that help advance the treatment, care and experience of those affected by cancer. Together, we can improve health outcomes.
The trust of our GRYT Health community is paramount in everything we do. Even if you choose to participate in a research project, we will never sell or share your data without your permission. We will always offer full transparency with regard to whom we are working with and the purpose of the research study.
The research we are doing in collaboration with our partners will move healthcare forward and it is our intention to share information that will improve health outcomes broadly. With that being said, some of our projects are confidential in nature and cannot be immediately shared.
When you sign up to join The GRYT Project, you will be added to a registry of those interested in working with us on research projects. It is important to note that each research project has its own unique parameters and while you may be qualified for one, it does not guarantee entry into other collaborations. We will contact you by email when projects become available for which you meet the selection criteria.
Our research projects are conducted throughout the year. The projects available will vary from month to month. Unfortunately, we cannot predict how often you will be eligible to participate within a given year. Make sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book to avoid our emails going to spam.
Yes! Absolutely! As long as you meet the project requirements, you are eligible to participate in multiple research projects, even if that means participating in overlapping projects.
While we try very hard to make sure we can compensate those that participate in our projects as much and as often as we can, not all of our projects are compensated. Sometimes our partners have very limited resources and cannot offer compensation. You will know which projects are compensated and which are not, upfront and the choice to participate is yours.
