The Biorepository and Laboratory Services (BLS) sunrise plan has been approved and the group has resumed some operations.
The Clinical Research Support Center is celebrating many achievements since opening its doors in September and remains steadfast on its focus to identify the appropriate experts and functional groups to support researchers and study teams as they navigate and advance projects through the clinical research process.
More than 100 visitors attended the Clinical Research Support Center Open House earlier this month to help celebrate the new center’s grand opening, network with colleagues, and learn about the support and resources available to U of M clinical researchers and study teams.
A recently enhanced partnership between CTSI's Biorepository and Laboratory Services (BLS) and the Department of Anatomic Pathology aims to increase availability of well-curated human research specimens and more efficiently process specimens for analysis by University of Minnesota investigators.
CTSI recently debuted lower rates and a more flexible rate structure for University of Minnesota investigators using CTSI’s Biorepository & Laboratory Services (BLS) for collecting, processing, and distributing de-identified human specimens.
Cole Drifka, PhD, recently joined CTSI as Biorepository and Laboratory Services (BLS) Manager.
In this role, Dr. Drifka will manage and develop a state-of-the-art integrated biorepository to serve the needs of investigators who require access to human specimens for their research.
In addition to histology, immunohistochemistry and digital imaging services, CTSI’s Biological Materials Procurement Network (BioNet) tissue procurement facility provides researchers with high-quality tissue procurement services in compliance with best industry practices and current regulations.
CTSI’s Biological Materials Procurement Network (BioNet), which is part of CTSI's Biorepository and Laboratory Services (BLS), recently installed new equipment and expanded its technicians’ certifications to continue to provide University researchers with the most current and comprehensive tissue procurement, histology and Immunohistochemistry, and digital imaging services available at the University.
