Biological samples in storage
PATH Biobank contains breast cancer specimens from more than 12,000 patients.
PATH supports breast cancer research both in academic and industrial groups. We encourage researchers to contact us at an early stage of a project. This way, collectives can be carefully chosen to fit into the planned project. PATH asks researchers for a written abstract of the planned project including a biostatistical estimation of the required sample size. We also ask research groups to contribute to the cost recovery of our work.
PATH's sample source sites
PATH has six sample source sites in Germany. PATH cooperates with multiple hospitals, all of which are certified breast cancer centres.
