The National Mesothelioma Virtual Bank (NMVB) collects and distributes tumor tissue and blood samples to the research community from consented patients. The specimens are stored with de-identified clinical data and that is made available for research. Investigators can search the study database to identify and request these materials via the NMVB website. NMVB is the largest and most accessible resource for biospecimens donated by mesothelioma patients.
