Director: Scott Scrape, MD

The Biorepository and Biospecimen Resource (BBR) houses blood and tissue specimens from patients seen at The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. These specimens are linked to medical information through The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Information Warehouse.

Researchers may request specimens and/or data from the BBR, but this resource stopped procuring patient-consented tissues in the fall of 2013 when Ohio State’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved a new and enhanced biorepository and universal consent protocol and shared resource called Total Cancer Care®, or TCC (see TCC Shared Resource description, below). However, stored BBR specimens are still available for research purposes.

BBR's Goal

  • Facilitate biomedical research using patient tissues stored at The Ohio State University.
