Daisy Tumour Bank

We want to substantially impact the ways in which cancer is understood, diagnosed and treated, to give cancer patients the best chance of a long and healthy life.

Yorkshire has significantly higher cancer incidence rates and lower survival rates than England’s national average. Cancer causes more than one in four deaths in the UK alone and research carried out by institutions, such as Hull York Medical School and the University of Hull, is essential in combatting this.

The Daisy Tumour Bank provides a resource of tissue and blood samples for ethically approved cancer research across the UK and the European Economic Area, to benefit cancer patients in the future.

Licensed by the Human Tissue Authority, the Daisy Tumour Bank is located at Castle Hill Hospital in East Riding of Yorkshire, allowing the timely collection of samples from patients undergoing procedures at the hospital.

Donations of very small amounts of tissue or blood can go a long way in generating lots of useful information, including improvements to cancer treatments, discovering new treatments, and determining the causes and mechanisms of cancer – helping to improve outcomes for those patients living with cancer.
