CNTRP Biorepository arrives in Montreal
The CNTRP Core 2 inititative is working with research sites to establish a virtual biorepository that will link existing and prospective research biobanks with other research sites from across the country. Recently, the biorepository at the McGill University Health Centre Human Islet Transplant Laboratory received state-of-the-art equipment, enabling a complete sample processing & inventory system for local storage. Currently, Core 2 is under way developing a CNTRP network to create a national database linking transplantation and diabetes researchers with the valuable data and tissue required for patient-focused research.
Additional information about the CNTRP Virtual Biorepository will be presented at the upcoming CNTRP Annual Meeting in Montebello. For more information, please contact Peter Subrt, CNTRP Core 2 Manager.
