About

The Weizmann-Brazil Tumor Bank, part of the Moross Integrated Cancer Center (MICC), supports the preservation and an in-depth investigation of tumors in various stages of progression. The facility helps Weizmann Institute researchers identify genes associated with tumor growth, thereby promoting the development of new strategies for cancer treatment.

Tumor Bank services include a wide range of tissue handling technologies, as well as cryogenic tissue storage, forming the basis of a tumor repository capable of accommodating thousands of medically-important samples over many years.
