The Canadian Tumour Repository Network
BIOBANK RESOURCE CENTRE ONLINE
UBC Office of Biobank, Education and Research (OBER) in collaboration with the Canadian Tumour Tissue Repository (CTRNet) has created an online resource for biobanks across Canada. This resource is available at www.biobanking.ca/.
CTRNet is a translational cancer research resource, funded by Canadian Institutes of Health Research, that furthers Canadian health research by linking cancer researchers with provincial tumour banks.
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.
