Lymphoma Tissue Bank

The JOACHMR  has a large computerized clinical database, including pathology and genetic information on lymphoma cases as well as a large tissue bank of frozen lymphoma specimens and normal lymphoid tissues, which is an invaluable resource for the work of the Center.

Since 1982, NLSG has reviewed 68,933 biopsies, procured 8,371 frozen tissue, and collected 6,919 clinical data on de novo patients treated by the NLSG.  Dr. Armitage and Julie M. Vose, MD, direct the NLSG, while Timothy Greiner, MD, leads the Hematopathology Section, which reviews the cases submitted.   The important work of the NLSG has led to national and international recognition of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, as well as its collaborators in the state of Nebraska.
