Tissue Bank Focus Group

Tissue Bank Focus Group

Fri 06 May

The team at Leeds Neuro Tissue Bank, co-funded by YBTC and OSCAR's Paediatric Brain Tumour Charity, is seeking high-grade patients to take part in a focus group.
The Leeds Neuro Tissue Bank was founded thanks to funding from Yorkshire's Brain Tumour Charity and OSCAR's.

The team wants to develop how they get consent for brain tumour tissue samples to be taken, in the hopes that more patients in future will agree to donate their tissue, which will have a vital impact on research.

They would like to speak to high-grade brain tumour patients who have had surgery in Leeds to remove their tumour. If you'd like to bring a friend or relative with you, please let us know and we will try to accommodate this.

The focus group will be held at the University of Leeds city centre campus (next to Leeds General Infirmary) on Friday 13th May, from 10am-12pm. It will be a relaxed, informal session to gather information on your experiences in clinics and ask for your opinions.

Parking will be paid for and refreshments provided. Further location details will be provided once attendance is confirmed.

To register your interest in taking part, please contact our CEO Marie Peacock at marie@yorksbtc.org.uk

The team said: "Leeds is proud home of the neuro tissue bank, where material collected during planned surgeries to treat brain disorders is stored and used in state-of-the-art research to try and find better treatments. In order to collect tissue, we first inform patients about tissue banking and ensure that we have their full consent to store their tissue.

"We want to make sure we relay this information, and request consent, in as respectful and appropriate manner as possible. We need to speak with brain tumour patients about when and how to best discuss brain tumour tissue banking with them."
