Rarecan

The RareCan Bioresource has been established to accelerate research into rarer forms of cancer- ie those with an incidence of less than 10 per 100,000. This includes both rare histological entities and rare subgroups within common tumours- for example those with unusual molecular characteristics. We are building up our repository of frozen tissues with matched frozen blood and formalin fixed paraffin embedded blocks but can also collect samples “to order”. We have overarching NHS research Ethics approval for research projects using samples collected by the bioresource.
