"The aim is to continue to expand the Queensland Brain Tumour Bank. As of July 2016 over 210 patients’ samples have been collected. Our long term goal is to collect biological samples from over 85% of surgeries in Queensland. These tumour samples are essential for genetic testing and growing tumour cell lines to test new therapies for brain cancer patients."
