Tumour and Other Sample Banking

Sample study

The QEII Lung Tumour Bank, which is now one of the largest human lung tumour banks in the country, was established by Dr. Zhaolin Xu and his colleagues in 2005. The bank is certified by the Canadian Tissue Repository Network (CTRNet).

Our department also houses other sample collections, including:  

  • collections of pituitary tumours (Dr. Orr and Dr. Bedard)
  • ocular disorders (Dr. Orr and Dr. Bedard)
  • pancreatic tumours (Dr. Giacomantonio) 
  • prostate tumours (Dr. Dellaire and Dr. Merriman)
