Title
Creation of a Clinical and Pathologic Tissue Microarray Registry for Radical Cystectomy Specimens
Objective
The objectives of this research is to establish a bladder TMA for use in future studies to confirm the relevance of molecules and pathways which appear to be important in human bladder cancer. We hypothesize that we will be able to use this research tool to identify molecules which may predict specific clinical outcomes and/or identify targets for novel therapy of bladder cancer patients.
