Launch of The Alfred tissue bank
THE ALFRED LAUNCH
The Biobank is pleased to announce that Parliamentary Secretary for Health, Nick Wakeling MP, will officially launch The Alfred Tissue Bank on Friday 10th August at The Alfred Hospital.
The Alfred Tissue Bank has been operating since January, and Biobank Coordinator Lisa McPhail has so far consented over fifty donors. During this time, Lisa has continued to receive excellent support from researchers and surgeons and in particular has been working closely with the Melbourne Melanoma Project and the Victorian Melanoma Service.
The launch will be a wonderful opportunity to see first-hand how the Biobank operates and to meet the staff at The Alfred.
