Objective: The NCIC CTGTTDR contains unique disease specific collections which are linked to an associated clinical dataset. This represents a "real" tumour bank in that tissue is collected from institutions across Canada and the world, catalogued and housed centrally in the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine at Queen's University Our mission is to establish a collection of specimens stored in house and linked with clinical trials dataset. Access to this tissue permits the assessment of prognostic factors in determining the outcome of disease, the assessment of predictive factors to various chemotherapeutic agents and treatment regimens, and to facilitate the understanding of the basic biological and genetic mechanisms of cancer.
