Abstract : The second year of the University of Michigan Human Breast Cell/Tissue Bank and Data base has been dedicated to advertising the existence of this resource and providing investigators from around the country and internationally with the cells and tissues we have banked. A World Wide Web page for advertising this resource was developed and put on-line. This web site contains an on-line order form that allows investigators to request, via e-mail, the cells or tissues that suits their needs. During the past year, this web site has been visited over 1000 times and many investigators have made use of the on-line order form requests for breast cancer cells and tissues. Thus, over the past year, resource has distributed frozen human breast cancer cells, breast cancer cell lines, and paraffin embedded and frozen histologic sections from breast cancer specimens. Goals for the upcoming year are to improve our data base so that clinical, histopathologic and immunohistochemical data are readily available to investigators who get cells and tissues from this resource, and to improve the visibility of this resource in order to increase the number of requests that we receive and fill.
