High Risk Skin Cancer Tissue Bank

Non Melanoma Skin Cancer Tissue Bank

UCSF is developing the capability to freeze and store portions of cutaneous cancers that have been recently excised. The purpose of this tissue bank is to facilitate future genetic and molecular studies that seek to understand the underlying cause of skin cancer. Patients may additionally be asked to provide a blood sample and/or a sample of unaffected skin.

Scientist interested in utilizing tissue from this resource should contact the UCSF Department of Dermatology, High Risk Skin Cancer Clinic.
