On campus study participation involves travel to the St. Jude campus for a comprehensive assessment averaging 3 to 4 days, during which health surveys are completed, biologic specimens are collected, metabolic, cognitive, and neuromuscular functional status are systematically evaluated, and laboratory and diagnostic assessments of organ function are performed.

The table summarizes the specific assessments completed by SJLIFE participants (18+ years of age and 10+ years from cancer diagnosis), ACT/SJLIFE participants (5+ years of age and < 10 years from cancer diagnosis, and controls).
