Samples from the Precision Panc clinical trials are processed at the Glasgow Precision Oncology Laboratory (GPOL).
At GPOL, we perform genetic analysis of cancer cells and normal cells. We use this information for the purposes of research: to better understand the genetic changes that cause cancer to guide the development of improved treatments.
We do not know who the samples belong to, as we do not hold names, addresses or similar information. The samples and information we have are identified by a unique code which can be linked back to you by the person in charge of the study you are taking part in. This might be your NHS doctor or a scientist who has asked you to help with their research.
We keep all your data in a secure environment which can only be accessed by relevant members of GPOL staff. We will not share your data with anyone other than the doctor or scientist in charge of the study, or one of their team. We will keep your data until the person in charge of the study is satisfied that no more analysis needs to be performed.
If you need any further information, please write to us at: Patient Enquiries, GPOL, Wolfson Wohl Cancer Research Centre, Institute of Cancer Sciences, University of Glasgow, Garscube Estate, Switchback Road, Bearsden, G61 1QH. Alternatively, you can email: firstname.lastname@example.org. This Privacy Notice came into effect on the 25th May 2018 and will be reviewed after 1 year.
