The tissue collection will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 10, in the Hematology Clinic and Women's Center at the IU Simon Cancer Center, 1030 W. Michigan St. The tissue donation is obtained from the breast with a biopsy, after the patient has received local anesthesia. The amount of tissue taken during the procedure is about 1 gram -- the size of two peas. The acquisition, processing, storage, retrieval and dissemination of all specimens are performed according to best practices, as determined by the National Cancer Institute.
