King's Health Partners Cancer Biobank

King's Health Partners Cancer Biobank collects blood, tissue and urine samples from patients with a range of cancer types who are referred to Guy's & St Thomas' NHS Trust. The Breast Biobank alone has been providing tumour samples with matching clinico-pathological data for research studies since the 1970's. Other tumour types including lung, head and neck, prostate, UGI, bladder, colorectal, lymphoma and MPD have been added since 2008. The Biobank is accessible to both academic groups and commercial companies.
