A Combined Omics and Tissue Biobank for Paediatric Cancers

The Swedish Childhood Tumour Biobank (BTB) is a nonprofit national infrastructure for samples and genomic data collection from pediatric patients diagnosed with central nervous system and other solid tumours in Sweden. Fresh frozen tumour tissue and patient’s matched blood are collected from affected patients and genomic data is continuously generated and made available for approved medical research projects. We expect that the accessibility of biological samples and/or data to the research community will contribute to further advances in the understanding of tumour biology, which in turn will impact many aspects of clinical care of children with cancer, by refining diagnosis and/or identifying oncogenic drivers and therapeutic targets.
