New Biorepository Search Tool Launched

The Biorepository and Pathology Core group is pleased to announce the launch of the Biospecimen Web Portal.  Investigators will now be able to perform simple to complex searches for various types of bio-specimens that have been collected over the past 10 years.

This easy to use Biospecimen search engine will allow individuals to explore the various types of tissues (and fluids) that have been collected covering a variety of organ systems and disease types.  Furthermore, through interface with our bio-specimen tracking system, investigators will begin to understand the quantity and types of specimens (i.e. formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded, frozen) that are potentially available for their respective research studies.  Please follow the simple steps listed on our Biorepository CoRE webpage to begin your search.  All specimen requests will be prioritized based on timing of email receipt and answered by Biorepository personnel as quickly as possible.

For additional information regarding the sample inventory please contact Dr. Michael Donovan, Scientific Director ( For specific questions regarding use of the search tool please email:
