The Bay Area Tumor Institute operates
the only adult cancer tissue collection network west of the
Mississippi. The Institute collects fresh malignant and matching
normal tissue for scientific study by qualified cancer researchers
in the Bay Area and worldwide. Tissue not used locally is
sent to the Cooperative
Human Tissue Network for worldwide distribution.
Applicants must be associated with a recognized research
or academic institution and be approved for participation
by the Cooperative Human Tissue Network.
