The Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank (BCNTB) has been funded since 2009 and is the UK’s first national breast tissue biobank. The aim of the BCNTB is to give all researchers access to a unique resource of biological materials and supportive clinical data from patients with breast cancer (together with normal controls). Such a resource, efficiently and ethically collected, provides all researchers with high-quality, relevant materials, helping to raise the standard of breast cancer research and facilitating the translation of scientific findings into the clinical setting. Do come to hear about the Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank and how we can help support your research.
