The Continuum Biobank

The purpose of the Continuum Tissue Bank is to understand how our bodies work to fight cancer so we can improve diagnosis and design better treatments. Our Tissue Bank will supply scientists who are undertaking cancer research to gain a better understanding of the biological mechanism that allow unique individuals to survive multiple cancers. The biobank collects blood samples from donors who have survived multiple cancers. Frozen peripheral blood mononucleated cells (PBMCs) and plasma are stored for these donors and healthy controls with no family history of cancer.
