Barts Cancer Institute Breast Tissue Bank

This ground breaking initiative will see the Barts Cancer Institute and 4 other centres around the country working together as one national resource, to house the multi-million pound Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank. Professor Louise Jones and a dedicated team head up the Tissue bank in the Barts Cancer Institute. The tissue bank includes a dedicated cell culture team, and has just established the Metastatic Bank including a Rapid Autopsy Programme. In the coming years we will see the benefits to people with breast cancer, as research using tissues from the Bank will lead to new treatments which have the potential to save the lives of many thousands of people with this disease.
