Resource:UCSF Brain Tumor Research Center Tissue Bank

Name: Resource:UCSF Brain Tumor Research Center Tissue Bank
Description: The Brain Tumor Research Center Tissue Bank began collecting tissue in 1978 and has established an organized repository of characterized tissues--frozen, paraffin-embedded, blood and cultures--that are maintained in a manner useful for a wide range of studies.

Samples are collected only from patients who have agreed to have their tissues banked and used for future research. Consent documents are maintained in a secure area and associated clinical data are held in a double-password protected computer database. Each sample received into the Tissue Bank is non-identifying number. No protected health information (PHI) is released.

To obtain samples, investigators submit a request form to the Manager. The request form requires an explanation of the tissue requested (type, number of samples, justification), description of the study, CHR approval (see new policy regarding human vs. non-human research) and Project Leader authorization. The Manager reviews each request for feasibility before presentation to the Scientific Core Committee.

The UCSF Neurosurgery Tissue Bank makes its inventory of stock cell lines available to all investigators. Requested cells are grown in T-25 flasks and shipped FedEx Priority Overnight at the receipient's expense. However, if you prefer, we can ship the frozen cells, packed in dry ice. (Note: some countries restrict dry ice shipments.)
