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 (DTB) provides researchers with prompt access to cancer samples, which speeds up the process of research. Donations of very small amounts of tissue or blood can go a long way and can generate lots of useful information, including improvements to cancer treatments, identifying new treatments and determining the causes and mechanisms of cancer.

Cancer patients receiving treatment in the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, who generously donate a small amount of their tissue or blood to the DTB will help to improve the lives of cancer patients of the future through ethically approved research.

Samples stored in the DTB will also help to support research throughout the UK and Europe, and will facilitate high class research within the Joint Centre for Cancer Studies in Hull.

Financial Support
The DTB is a 'not for profit' venture and relies on funding.  If you would like to make a financial contribution to help support the work of the DTB, please get in touch.
