King's Health Partners Cancer Biobank
The King’s Health Partners Cancer Biobank is fundamental to our aim, as a Comprehensive Cancer Centre, of bringing together our world-class research, teaching and clinical practice for the benefit of patients.
We have a well-established, tradition of biobanking with a long history of tissue and data use across the UK and Europe. We are constantly improving our resources by collecting an more diverse range of sample types from the majority of cancers. The Biobank resources are essential in understanding what causes cancer, which treatment options are likely to be effective and how to improve patient care in the years to come.
Our aim is to collect tissue and blood samples from patients who attend Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust who have a diagnosis or possible diagnosis of cancer. We also collect some samples from patients without cancer and also from healthy volunteers.
We translate cutting-edge research into excellent patient care through world-class education and training.
This celebration of cancer survivorship is always a joyful and inspirational day for patients and their families, friends and carers, our staff and guests.
Activities planned include the fashion show, health and well-being taster sessions, educational talks, an opportunity to see behind the scenes of the Cancer Centre, food stalls and demonstrations, activities for all the family and much more.
Your presence at Cancer Survivors’ Day 2019 would be warmly welcomed and deeply appreciated.
