The Breast Cancer Resource for Research and Banking has accrued breast cells or tissues from 1,467 patients during the grant period 3 year grant with 9 month extension without additional finding. The emphasis of this project has been on the collection of microscopic at risk and precursor lesions as imprintsscrapes. Additionally, throughout the grant period, all invasive carcinomas with available tissue have been accrued, since most investigators who have requested samples have requested frozen pieces of tumor tissue paired with normal tissue from the same patient, i.e. their interest has been in established carcinomas and not in precursor lesions. During the last year we also filled requests for specimens for microdissection. Over the entire grant period 26 investigator requests for tissue have been filled. At termination of the grant the Breast Cancer Resource was transferred to the auspices of the Resource for Tumor Tissue and Data of the NYU Kaplan Comprehensive Cancer Center.
