Brain Cancer Biobanking Australia (BCBA) is a virtual biobank hub established to provide researchers easy access to the amount, quality and type of tissue and associated data they need to accelerate both paediatric and adult translational brain cancer research.
The BCBA Minimum Dataset Working Group is proud to have the Clinical Annotation Datasets for Brain Cancer Biobanking manuscript published in the September edition of the Society for Neuro-Oncology journal – Neuro-Oncology Practice. The annotation of biospecimens with clinical data is an important part of biobanking. The working group, in collaboration with BCBA's multi-disciplinary consortium members, developed the recommended brain cancer minimum datasets to guide the integration of data from multiple existing biobanks for research studies and for planning prospective brain cancer biobanking activities.

BCBA’s fundraising arm, the Brain Cancer Collective, will hold the annual 2 day 240km Bike Ride for Brain Cancer on 3rd and 4th April in 2020. The boutique ride takes a scenic route from Sydney to the Hunter Valley and finishes with a long lunch in the beautiful grounds of Calais Estate Winery. We hope that you will join us on the road and support our efforts to advance brain cancer research.
