This is a collection of samples of breast cancer and normal breast, also including images of tissue samples, and blood samples. Samples and images are made available from the Breast Cancer Tissue Bank for research into breast cancer including its causes, development, diagnosis and treatment.
The Breast Cancer Tissue Bank Sample and Image Collection is divided into subcollections (accessible via menus in the website Research Query page) in two ways. Samples and images may be from invasive cancers, non-invasive cancers or normal non-cancer breast tissue. The samples themselves may be of tissue or of blood, with several subtypes in each case. There are microscope images associated with some of the tissue samples, found within the FFPE part of the Tissue subcollection. The Research Query page also allows searching to be narrowed according to several other parameters concerning the health and treatment of subjects.
