UMMS Central Biorepository

biorepository

As part of the Medical School's Strategic Research Initiative, the UMMS Central Biorepository will enhance the full spectrum of our research portfolio by providing a world-class, accredited, standardized, safe and monitored environment for the processing, storage and distribution of high-quality normal and diseased biospecimens annotated with detailed clinical and laboratory data.

The UMMS Central Biorepository is still in early implementation stages, establishing a facility at the North Campus Research Complex (NCRC). The development plan recommended by the faculty experts and outside consultants involves the setup of four Pilot Projects for initialization of the biorepository operation, and the establishment of procedures for onboarding new studies into the repository.
