The TCBF previously received funding to collect, process, and bank tissue samples and fluids for the following UAB SPORES:  Ovarian, Breast, and Pancreatic.  The facility currently stores thousands of tissue samples and fluids that were collected for these specialized banks.  As none of these SPORES are currently funded, specimens previously collected and banked for the SPORES are available to UAB Cancer Center members via the TPSF, and to other researchers via the CHTN.  UAB Cancer Center investigators interested in access to tissue banked for the SPORES should complete and submit the TPSF application:

UAB non-Cancer Center members or investigators outside UAB interested in applying for these specimens should complete and submit the CHTN application located on the CHTN website.
