Collection of clinical data and tumor tissue removed during brain surgeries for future research.
Procedure: Tissue Bank
Collection of clinical data and tumor tissue.
Other Name: Tissue Bank

Detailed Description:

The mission of the Florida Center for Brain Tumor Research is to discover cures for brain tumors and develop innovative brain tumor treatment modalities by providing a central repository for brain tumor biopsies and clinical information from individuals throughout the state of Florida, improving brain tumor biomedical research programs within the state of Florida, facilitating funding opportunities, fostering collaboration with brain tumor research organizations and other institutions, and fostering improved technology transfer of brain tumor research findings into clinical trials and widespread public use.

The Florida Center for Brain Tumor Research will collect and store left-over tissue that is not needed for medical care or diagnosis in a tissue bank in the Evelyn F. and William L. McKnight Brain Institute at the University of Florida. Tissue, medical information, cerebrospinal fluid, blood and answers to Quality of Life questionnaires will be stored and made available to researchers. Although developed for Florida, tumor tissue from all other states would be accepted.
