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.
