Gynecologic Oncology Tissue Bank

Established in 1991, the Gynecologic Oncology Tissue Bank (GOTB) in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology has been committed to supporting cancer research by offering human biological specimens to the Washington University research community, as well as national and international researchers. As one of the largest gynecologic oncology tissue bank in US, we collaborate with researchers, institutes like NCI, NIH, NRG, SGO etc. to support cancer reach, prevention, treatment and care.

GOTB collects cancer and normal tissue specimens, as well as plasma, serum, blood and other biological samples. All the specimens are collected with IRB approved studies and will be used in future studies.

In addition to specimen collection, the Bank also provides lab support for clinical trials and academic research. With the resources from GOTB, doctors and scientists are able to take their exploration of the roots of gynecologic cancers to the next level, when their findings help create new treatments to test with patients.
