Brains against brain tumors

BTRG Cancer research

Tumor tissue is invaluable to the study of brain cancer. Upstate is fortunate to have a unique resource, a bank of thousands of tiny vials of frozen cancer tissue samples dating back more than 25 years. These samples, taken from both adults and children, can be used for current and future research. Above, research assistant professor Nandhu Mohan Sobhana, PhD, examines a tray of this preserved tissue – stored in vials about the size of a small pencil. (PHOTO BY ROBERT MESCAVAGE)
