Head and Neck Cancer
King’s Health Partners Head and Neck Cancer Biobank collects tissue and blood samples from patients undergoing treatment by the Head and Neck Cancer team at Guy’s Hospital. Samples are taken from malignant (cancer), benign (non-cancer tumours) and normal tissues along with blood samples.
Samples are collected from a wide range of sites throughout the head and neck region including, oral cavity, nasal cavity, throat, salivary glands, thyroid, lymph nodes and skin.
The aim of the Head and Neck Biobank is to provide tissue, blood, saliva and derivatives to researchers to better understand head and neck diseases, particularly cancer and to develop new treatment.
