Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank Award

Professor Angie Cox, Academic Unit of Molecular Oncology,  and her research group were awarded £410,000 from the Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank to support collection of longitudinal blood samples (with matched tumour) from breast cancer patients until July 2018.

These samples will allow researchers to monitor tumour markers over time in individual patients, and will be suitable for techniques such as proteomics analysis and circulating tumour DNA analysis.

The Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank provides a great resource for breast cancer researchers in the UK:
