Cancer Tissue Bank

Controlling metastasis is an essential requirement for cancer management. The current model systems pay scant attention to human biology due to scarcity of evaluable patient samples. We propose an expansion of the tissue banks at the Barts Cancer Institute to include the collection of metastasis from a variety of primary tumours as well as distinct metastatic sites for use in laboratory research. This will facilitate identification targets to control tumour spread and develop novel biomarkers.
