About Us

The benefits of working with CTRNet include:

  • The ability for researchers to search for quality controlled tissue samples from Canada’s leading tumour banks in one central location and for biobanks to display and make their biospecimens available for research users.
  • Learning opportunities in tissue handling, research design and relevant technology training and innovations.
  • Invitation to CTRNet workshops and conferences.

Biobank Resource Centre Online

The UBC Office of Biobank Education and Research (OBER) in collaboration with the Canadian Tissue Repository Network (CTRNet) has created an online resource for biobanks across Canada. This resource is available at www.biobanking.org
