"The Komen Tissue Bank (KTB) is the world’s only biobank, collecting healthy, normal breast tissue which is then shared with researchers across the globe. Komen’s new half-million dollar grant sets the stage for the Tissue Bank to conduct a first-of-its-kind tissue collection in Kenya, gathering normal breast tissue (as well as matched serum, plasma and DNA) from 200 Kenyan donors. This tissue also will be available to researchers globally."
