DESCRIZIONE
From the date of inauguration (December 2009), more than 3000 samples of biological tissues (Right and Tumor Tissue, Blood, Plasma, PBMCs) from oncological patients have been collected, stored and characterized at the Biobank Bruno Boerci (for each sample is also available the paraffin tissue). These samples come from more than 1500 patients who have freely decided to donate to the Biobank part of the biological material in excess of the diagnosis. The Biobank Bruno Boerci is proposed as a valuable and irreplaceable source of biological material for researchers, to further our understanding of the clinical and biological features of cancer and to offer an opportunity for medical development, directing efforts towards a more personalized therapy.
