Hoogland Lymphoma Biobank



Since its inception in April 2014, the Hoogland Lymphoma Biobank has consented more than 900 patients. These patients have had their primary care at the University of Chicago Medicine, have come to the University of Chicago Medicine for second opinions, or are shared patients at another hospital or treatment facility. As a result of signing so many patients, we have been able to collect a large number of tissue and blood samples, as well as epidemiological data questionnaires that will help move forward research in the areas of the causes and behaviors of lymphomas.

How can I help?
We would appreciate your help if you:

  • Have lymphoma or are currently being treating for lymphoma
  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Are willing to consent to a release of medical information
  • Are interested in knowing more about the complexities of lymphoma

If you decide to sign consent to the Hoogland Lymphoma Biobank, you:

  • May withdraw consent at any time
  • May consent to lifestyle surveys and/or bio-specimen collection
  • Will only have bio-specimens collected during routine procedures
