This article is about the world's first  national breast cancer tissue bank in the UK.  Do we have such a bank in the US?  If not, why not?  Just imagine all the research that could be accomplished with a national database of breast cancer tissues.


Leeds Named As Site Of New Multi Million Pound Breast Cancer Tissue Bank, UK


(Brief summary of the article)
Breast Cancer Campaign revealed the University of Leeds as one of the key locations of the world's first national breast cancer tissue bank.

This ground breaking initiative will see four centres around the UK working together as one national resource, to house the multi-million pound Breast Cancer Campaign Tissue Bank. . . .

From tissue samples researchers will be able to glean vital, but anonymous, information about the patient, the characteristics of their cancer, family history, treatments, and, over time, their effectiveness, and whether the disease progresses or recurs.

This was from Linda' s post yesterday! Is this what you are looking for? 

"Whoops. I just got a call from GHSU that Dr. Hawthorn is not supposed to know who the sample is from, so instead of calling her, please call Dr. Thomas Samuel at (706) 721-2505 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              (706) 721-2505      end_of_the_skype_highlighting, and he can pass the sample to Dr. Hawthorn without a name attached. It sounds silly but it has something to do with research integrity, I guess. Let me know if this needs further clarification."

It was too late, as I had already called Dr. Hawthorne!

Helen,

I think Linda's post is state specific Georgia tissue bank.  I guess my question is do we have a national tissue bank in the United States for access to all researchers, not confined to a particular state.

OH ok, I would think there should be one in the US maybe in Washington? I will keep my eyes open and if I find something, will pass it on.... Hope you are doing well and that it is starting to warm up soon.  We are having more rain this weekend so it will be a lazy one for sure.... Lots of time to search....xo h.
