Scientific Cores & Shared Resources Center for Biospecimen Research & Development

NYU School of Medicine’s Center for Biospecimen Research and Development was launched as a partnership between the Division of Advanced Research Technologies and the Department of Pathology. Our center’s mission is to drive scientific discovery through the use of human specimens. We help our investigators facilitate translational research, match human specimen resources to scientific needs, foster multi-investigator collaborative projects, and catalyze scientific innovation.

Our center is also focused on increasing clinical trial support for investigator-initiated trials, improving researcher access to existing biospecimen resources, and enhancing institution-wide tissue-banking efforts and capacity. Another priority is to implement a campus-wide policy for human biospecimen collection and storage to ensure regulatory compliance.
