WCM Prostate SPORE Biospecimen Request
The Biospecimen and Pathology Core collects and stores biospecimens to support successful translational research.
Requests for specimens are made electronically through the Biospecimen Request Platform (see below) and reviewed by the Governance Committee for availability, feasibility of the proposed project, and statistical validity of the proposed methods (in consultation with the Computational Biology and Biostatistics Core). WCM SPORE investigators will have first priority for specimens. Priority will then be given to collaborative investigators of other funded PCa SPOREs, other NCI-funded projects, other peer-reviewed funded projects (e.g., DOD, foundations), followed by unfunded projects and industry collaborations. Once a project is approved and appropriate IRB approval has been obtained, the de-identified specimens are distributed from the biobank to the investigator(s).
