Northwestern University Nervous System Tumor Bank

The Northwestern University Nervous System Tumor Bank (NSTB) provides scientists with high-quality, patient-derived biospecimens (tissues, cells and blood) to support preclinical and translational neuro-oncology research. We offer a comprehensive platform for biospecimen and data banking, including protocol and informed consent tracking, sample annotation, inventory management and integration with sample processing and analysis technologies

The NSTB is funded in part through the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University’s NCI P50 SPORE grant in Brain Tumor Research, as well as through the generous support of the Lou and Jean Malnati Brain Tumor Institute of the Lurie Cancer Center.
