Christiana Care First Community Hospital to Submit Samples to Cancer Genome Atlas Project
Date:11/12/2009

r 2008.

Workers at the Graham Cancer Center began collecting specimens for this groundbreaking project in March 2009. In the beginning, the initiative involved only three types of tumors: brain, ovary and lung. The NCI chose these three because the prognosis for patients with these types of tumors is poor and the likelihood of obtaining high-quality specimens is good.

Today, all types of colorectal and breast tumors along with kidney cancers are included. James Robb, M.D., FACH, consulting pathologist to the NCI and Office of Biorepositories and Biospecimen Research, has high praise for Christiana Care after a site visit to the Graham Cancer Center in October. "I can't say enough about the Christiana NCCCP-TCGA team," Dr. Robb says. "[They are] excellent, energetic and committed."
