Barts Gynae Tissue Bank

The purpose of the Barts Gynae Tissue Bank is to collect, store and share high quality tissue for translational research into gynaecological cancers. We collect gynaecological tissues, ascites, blood and urine that have been obtained during standard diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and are surplus to pathological diagnostic requirements. Tissues are collected from both primary and metastatic gynaecological cancer as well as from non-malignant tissues obtained in the course of standard investigation and treatment. The Barts Gynae Tissue Bank wishes to share the collection with academic researchers undertaking high quality research.
