Biorepository research projects
If you are a current or new patient you may qualify for one of the following:
Biospecimens (primarily blood donation, and could also include hair, nail, skin, urine, stool samples, dependent on project) will be collected from donors, along with a collection of limited information related to the specimen and health status of donor. No testing results will be available for your donation, with no direct benefit to donor, aside from contributing to the area of future research.
Patients like you are at the core of biomedical research. Contributions of biospecimens —blood and other biofluids, tissue, and cells—fuel medical discovery, leading to new diagnostics and therapies with the potential to benefit millions of patients worldwide.
Some examples of our projects under way are:
- Healthy non-smokers – specimen donation used for future research in Lung diseases
- Individuals scheduled for a colonoscopy – specimen donation used for future research for colorectal cancer
- Fatty Liver – specimen donation used for future research for Liver diseases
