Ongoing existing projects

The NBB has two main types of the biobanking arrangements – disease- or project-specific BioBanks and population based BioBanks

Population Based BioBank

In the near future, we intend to collect blood and microbiome samples from all of the patients hospitalized in Soroka.  Blood samples will be further processed and plasma, serum and white blood cells will be extracted and reserved in the biorepository for further research (including DNA/RNA sequencing in a later phase).

The Brain Tumor BioBank, is a collection of tumor and blood samples from patients suffering from different types of brain tumors. The purpose of the project is to understand the molecular and genetic mechanisms underlying the formation and progression of different brain tumors and to help development of new diagnostics and therapeutics.

The Head & Neck tumors BioBank will contribute to the development of new diagnostic tools and therapeutic implication on head, neck and thyroid cancer patients. A collection of tumor and blood samples from patients with different types of Head & Neck tumors. Some Tumor samples were used for primary cell-line purification or transplanted into lab mice for further research.

A collection of bone marrow and blood samples from hematology patients.  The purpose of this project is to characterize molecular and genetic determinations of hematological tumors and to identify correlates with aggressive phenotypes. In addition, we aim to identify biomarkers for early diagnosis of cancer, therapy and prognostication.

The purpose of this project is to establish a gynecologic cancers tissue bank. This will allow to understand the molecular and genetic mechanisms leading to the formation of tumors, and help establish new therapeutic strategies and to improve clinical outcomes. The establishment of the proposed BioBank for gynecological cancers will have a significant impact on the development of new diagnostic tools and therapeutic implication on patient treatment.

In the near future, we intend to collect blood and fecal samples from all of the patients hospitalized in the neurological department in Soroka, after experiencing a stroke. The purpose of this project is to allow us to understand the molecular, microbiome and genetic mechanisms leading to the formation of stroke. The establishment of the proposed BioBank will promote clinical studies and help improve patient care quality at Soroka.
