The Tissue Procurement Core (TPC) directed by Dr. Michael Knudson has received an ongoing award from the National Cancer Institute to provide human tissue specimens for the NCI-Patient Derived Xenograft Repository.  The repository is a national resource that scientists from around the country can utilize to study a wide variety of human cancer types.  The TPC has already contributed over 250 specimens to this repository and this award will allow the TPC to continue to support this important initiative. The most recent award started in November and is for $101,000.
