Funding & Collaborations

The ABCTB is funded by the following bodies:

  • National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC)
  • National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF)
  • Cancer Institute NSW


We would also like to acknowledge the members of our access committee, management committee and independent advisory panel, whose membership includes biobanking experts, bioethicists, researchers, clinicians and consumers.

The recruitment of donors and the collection of samples and clinical data would not be possible without the voluntary help of many individuals and groups, for whose help we are very grateful. This includes hospital staff who recruit donors to the biobank; as well as operating theatres and pathology labs (both public and private) who collect samples on our behalf.

We also thank consumer groups, ethics committees, medical secretaries, hospital IT departments, scientists and researchers country wide for their contributions. Most importantly we would like to thank the donors and their families.
