The Biorepository Core (BioC) complements the services provided by the Pharmacology Core and provides the laboratory-based, epidemiological, and clinical investigators with a diverse selection of human tissue specimens necessary for research. A major goal of the Core is to accelerate the transition from basic science to clinical research by providing access to well characterized human tissue. Within the established rules ofthe Human Investigative Committee and HIPAA, the Core performs several functions. These include patient consenting, tissue collection, tissue processing, banking and storage, retrieval, and transfer of fresh frozen and formalin fixed paraffin embedded human tissue obtained from the surgical suites and endoscopic units of KCI. Key services include case identification by diagnostic categories and subsequent retrieval of pathology materials (reports, blocks, slides, banked fixed and frozen materials), providing complete and accurate pathological diagnosis and interpretations.

Public Health Relevance

; BioC services enable basic science, population science, and clinical researchers to expand further into translational research. This is accomplished by the Core providing unique malignant and benign focused tissues from its tissue bank. Additionally, KCI investigators are able to use the BioC to rapidly evaluate targets and biomarkers relevant to cancer cure. Tissues acquired through this Core come from a diverse population, aiding research into health disparities.
