Cancer is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. To tackle this serious public health issue, research into the biology of cancer is urgently required to develop novel therapies and screening programs.
Biospecimens, being an irreplaceable and invaluable resource, are essential to support cancer research. Recognising the vital role of biobanking, the Alfred Cancer Biobank has been established to:
Heighten the community’s understanding and support of cancer research
Provide high-quality and well-annotated biospecimens to researchers
