Facility Details

The Ovarian Cancer Research Center (OCRC) has opened a Tumor BioTrust Collection (TBC) to the Penn research community on July 1, 2018. Specimens that are available through the OCRC TBC include gynecologic cancer specimens such as fresh and frozen tissues, plasma, serum, peripheral blood mononuclear cells, blood, formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) samples, Tissue Microarrays (TMAs), and various types of samples collected from rapid autopsies. All samples collected have clinical annotation including demographic patient profiles, pathological & clinical notations, treatment history, and detail disease information, etc. We are building and maintaining a centralized research database according to HIPPA specifications and Penn IRB standards.
