Human Tissue Bank (Tissue Bank)
The Partners in Cancer Research Tissue Bank, established with financial assistance from the Big C Appeal, is a valuable resource allowing collaborative research with colleagues at the University of East Anglia (UEA) into basic (molecular) mechanisms of disease. It has already generated a great deal of important new information about changes in the expression of various families of proteins in prostate and breast cancers, which may help us understand the development and progression of these diseases and provide possible new therapeutic options.
As medicine becomes more sophisticated, the Human Tissue Bank and the technologies with which it is associated will become increasingly important in routine clinical practice. It is, therefore, a considerable advantage to us to have developed such facilities and to have close links with colleagues at UEA who are interested in the molecular basis of disease. There are also opportunities to provide material for researchers in academic and other institutions elsewhere in this country or abroad.
The Human Tissue Bank is overseen by a committee, with representation from all of the major interested parties. The committee is not directly involved in the day-to-day running of the tissue bank but it has an important role in overseeing its function. The Tissue Bank is fully compliant with the regulations laid down by the Human Tissue Authority (HTA).
