Breast Cancer Research: Susan G. Komen® Tissue Bank at the IU Simon Cancer Center

2015KomenNCR-NBCAMGraphicFaceookCover-ResearchSince 2007, Susan G. Komen® has invested more than $7.5 million to support the Susan G. Komen® Tissue Bank at the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center – the only healthy breast tissue repository in the world. By studying normal tissue, the tissue bank accelerates research on the causes and prevention of breast cancer.

To more deeply understand the evolution of the disease, it is necessary to compare abnormal, cancerous tissue against normal, healthy tissue. By providing researchers with high quality normal breast tissue and matched serum, plasma and DNA, the Komen Tissue Bank accelerates research for the causes and prevention of breast cancer.
