Become a donor…it’s safe …it’s easy …and it helps the fight against cancer
The CONCERT Biobank is a large collection of cancer biospecimens, including tumour and normal adjacent tissue, blood and other relevant bodily fluids, which are linked to relevant health information and used as a resource for researchers to advance our understanding of cancer.
WHAT WE DO
We collect, process and store cancer biospecimens and health information for future research into the prevention and cure of cancer.
Our overall aim is to assist researchers in conducting large, population-based studies investigating the genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors associated with cancer.
- To provide services and tools that support researchers in conducting cancer research.
- To educate and promote the importance of a Cancer Biobank in the community.
