The Victorian Cancer Biobank is a not-for-profit consortium of tissue banks, supported by the Victorian Government through the Victorian Cancer Agency.

Our purpose is to provide high quality, ethically obtained biospecimens to support research that will eventually lead to improvements in cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Since operations commenced in 2006, more than 19,000 Victorians undergoing cancer and other surgery have donated blood and surplus tissue to the Biobank, applications have been received from over 140 cancer research groups located within Australia and overseas, and more than 33,000 biospecimens prepared from donated blood and tissues have been supplied.
