King's Health Partners Cancer Biobank logo

The King’s Health Partners Cancer Biobank is fundamental to our aim, as a Comprehensive Cancer Centre, of bringing together our world class research, teaching and clinical practice for the benefit of patients.

We have a well-established tradition of biobanking with a long history of tissue and data use across the UK and Europe. We are constantly improving our resources by collecting a more diverse range of sample types from the majority of cancers. The Biobank resources are essential in understanding what causes cancer, which treatment options are likely to be effective and how to improve patient care in the years to come.

Our aim is to collect tissue and blood samples from patients who attend Guy's and St Thomas' hospitals and who have a diagnosis or possible diagnosis of cancer.

We also collect some samples from patients without cancer and also from healthy volunteers.
