Great question! Our group does no animal research of any kind. We are using human tissue samples that were originally taken from patients as part of their routine treatment rather than for research. For example, patients with bladder cancer who needed surgery donated their tumors to a shared research data bank. These patients have given our institution permission to use their anonymized samples for retrospective research projects. We have official Institutional Review Board approval for all projects that we undertake. Thanks for your interest!
