What we do
Our group provides the infrastructure to collect and store human tissue in Imperial College ethically and legally. We provide advice and services to extract a variety of different analyses for downstream analysis, and the infrastructure to access the diagnostic pathology archive.
Why it is important
Access to human tissue is essential to understand the molecular mechanisms that underpin disease. Facilitating access to human material in different formats that is appropriately annotated assists ourselves and others to carry out detailed molecular analysis.
How it can benefit patients
Understanding the molecular biology of disease will provide new insights into diagnosis and treatment.
