Definition The mission of the Canadian Virtual Brain The mission of the Canadian Virtual Brain Tumour Bank (CVBTB) is to facilitate clinical, molecular and translational research through the provision of well-characterized tissue linked to clinical data and to become a standardized national tissue resource whereby scientific needs are met, addressed and accelerated through a common public accessible core – the CVBTB. <br /> Recognizing the need to encourage systemic banking of brain tumor tissues throughout the country and to link banks of brain tumor tissue samples with academic and scientific institutions that require these samples, the CVBTB was established. Under the sponsorship of Schering Plough Canada Inc. and in association with the Canadian Brain Tumour Consortium (CBTC), the CVBTB looks to act as a resource for all researchers to provide them with information on the types of brain tumor tissue samples available and to direct them to the tumor tissue banking sites holding these samples. The CVBTB also looks to provide information on standard operating procedures regarding aspects of tumor tissue banking such as tissue accrual, storage and shipment and the processing of blood samples such as serum and lymphocytes. The CVBTB currently consists of four brain tumour tissue banking sites (Toronto Western Hospital - Toronto, Ontario; London Health Sciences Centre - London, Ontario; McGill University - Montreal, Quebec; University of Calgary - Calgary, Alberta) and is continuously looking for more institutions to be a part of the CVBTB. If your institution would like to become a part of the CVBTB, please contact the CVBTB coordinator. BTB, please contact the CVBTB coordinator.
