London-based Lexus has been instrumental in establishing and supporting the prostate cancer biobank at the London Health Sciences Center (LHSC), according to representatives of the London Health Sciences Foundation, the hospital’s fundraising arm.

The money will be used to run the prostate cancer biobank and to buy an advanced freezing system to store samples from patients, the foundation said.

“We remain steadfast in providing the necessary financial support needed to support the groundbreaking research and compassionate patient care delivered by the LHSC’s dedicated healthcare professionals,” said Chris Pinelli, general manager of Lexus of London, in a statement.

According to the foundation, London-based Lexus has been raising funds for prostate cancer research through its annual golf tournament for two decades.

Joseph Chin, A Surgeon and Head of Urology-Oncology, applauded Lexus of London for its longstanding support.

“The recent initiative to establish the LHSC Urological Cancer Biobank is an example of their commitment to improving the lives and care of cancer patients in our community,” Chin said in a statement.

Hospital officials say the “biobank” gives staff access to biological samples, such as blood, urine and tissue, as well as clinical information to help discover new “biomarkers” that can help tailor treatment options.
