Leicester Institute for Lung Health Research Tissue Bank

Medical research is currently in an era in which thousands of genes, RNA molecules and proteins can be analysed in a single experiment, meaning that large numbers of potential molecular markers for disease are being identified. To validate and translate these biomarkers large series of tissue and other biosamples are required. The Leicester Institute for Lung Health (LILH) Research Tissue Bank (RTB) is intended to meet this need and to facilitate high quality research. The LILH RTB will support projects from all sections of the respiratory research community within Leicester, while remaining open to provision of tissues and samples to organisations outside Leicester. Researchers from academic, charitable and commercial organisations will be able to apply for access to banked tissue samples.
