Veterinary Biospecimen Repository

Summary:

The Veterinary Biospecimen Repository collects both tumor and normal (whole blood, tissue, serum, plasma, urine) samples following guidelines modeled after the Children’s Oncology Group tissue banking protocols and serves as a valuable resource of spontaneous tumors in the pet population with the goal of characterizing these tumors to provide a framework for evaluation of novel therapeutic approaches in animals and humans. The VCRS is a unique shared resource enabling the integration of multiple models of cancer into the process of drug development and translational therapeutics.
