Accredited by the College of American Pathologists, the Biorepository Shared Resource, or BRSR, provides well-characterized, high-quality, de-identified specimens with annotated data for clinical and basic science research purposes. The biorepository functions as a centralized tissue bank to provide researchers access to cancer- and non-cancer-related specimens (fresh/
frozen tissue, paraffin blocks/sections and fluids), procured and stored using international standards of best practices and protocols compliant with the Office for Human Research Protection. Specimens can be obtained prospectively as part of clinical trials or accessed through UC Davis Health Clinical Laboratories, where over 5.5 million blood specimens are processed annually.
Biorepository Shared Resource is part of UC Davis Health Comprehensive Cancer Center.
