Komen Tissue Bank

Friday, September 14th vs. Minnesota Lynx; 7pm


The Komen Tissue Bank is the only repository in the world for normal breast tissue and matched serum, plasma and DNA. By studying normal tissue, we accelerate research for the causes and prevention of breast cancer. To more deeply understand the evolution of the disease, it is necessary to compare abnormal, cancerous tissue against normal, healthy tissue. We are committed to making a difference by acting as advocates for thinking, sharing and understanding NORMAL.

Nearly every woman is affected by breast cancer—either personally or through someone they love. The Komen Tissue Bank at the IU Simon Cancer Center lets every woman fight back against this common enemy. The bank is the only place in the world that collects healthy breast tissue from women who don’t have cancer. The goal is to study this tissue and learn how breast cancer starts—and then stop it. You can support this important work by making a financial contribution, volunteering or donating your own tissue. To learn more about the Komen Tissue Bank visit komentissuebank.iu.edu.
