Our Research Platform
Through this research platform we provide:
- our collection of banked biospecimens that can be selected by researchers and our custom prospective collection services for specific research projects (the Tumour Tissue Repository (TTR) unit)
- advice, training, education, and contract biobanking setup services to researchers and institutions wishing to set up their own collections (the University of British Columbia Office of Biobank Education and Research (OBER) unit)
- oversight of the implementation of national biobanking practice standards and international certification programs offered through the Biobank Resource Centre (the Canadian Tissue Repository Network (CTRNet ) Biospecimen Quality platform unit)
Advancing the efficiency and impact of biomedical research and data using human biospecimens.
Providing exceptional support and education on all aspects of biobanking globally.
