VIVO Biobank

As a partnership between Cancer Research UK and Blood Cancer UK, VIVO Biobank provides a single point of access for people and organisations involved in researching blood, bone marrow and solid cancers in the young. VIVO Biobank merges the two existing national biobanks focused on childhood and youth cancer research – the CCLG Tissue Bank and CellBank. It contains all of the samples stored in each, making a deeper pool of tissues available from a single point of access. VIVO Biobank creates an integrated approach to how cancer samples are collected, stored and catalogued. It helps simplify how samples and data can be accessed by the research community and opens possibilities to link that data with other databases more easily.

Existing samples:

  • Acute leukemia, disease (disorder)
  • Fit and well (finding)
