Virtual Tissue Bank

By clicking "I Accept" below, I agree to acknowledge the Virtual Tissue Bank of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Tissue Bank at the IU Simon Cancer Center as the source of any data I use or download from this site which I might use in connection with any article, report, abstract, poster or other such creative activity in written, electronic or other form.


If you download or make use of data from the VTB and use it in a manuscript we would like to be referenced as follows:

“Data from the Susan G. Komen Tissue Bank at the IU Simon Cancer Center were used in this study. We thank contributors, including Indiana University who collected data used in this study, as well as donors and their families, whose help and participation made this work possible.”

We continue to work to inform researchers about both the electronic VTB and actual physical tissue samples available through KTB. We appreciate any assistance you can supply in spreading the word about this resource.

Please refer any others who may be able to make use of our samples in their research, or who may need the data stored in this virtual bank, to our website Remember that all VTB data is available for download for your use.
