The mission of the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center Biorepository is to provide high quality, well-characterized cancer-related human tissue specimens and biological materials to collaborators. 

 

 

The specific objectives of the shared resource are:

  • The procurement, preparation, and preservation of malignant, benign, and normal human specimens in a centralized repository
  • To provide high quality annotated data (pathological and clinical) using a secure and interactive database system
  • To facilitate compliance with all mandated regulatory processes (IRB, HIPAA, SRC) thereby promoting ethical research by UC Davis researchers
  • To provide pathologic consultation to investigators using human specimens for scientific correlation
  • To efficiently prioritize, disperse, and track specimens via a rapid and standardized approval and monitoring process
  • To provide TMA consultation and services for cancer center investigators and their collaborators
