DKTK Serviceeinheit: Biobanken
© Frank Bierstedt /DKFZ
Existing biosample collections and associated medical data are a result of multiple efforts of physicians and scientists - often heterogenously documented and stored at each site. The CCP Bio is the central supportive structure for biobanking in the consortium that connects all participating biobanks, supervises ethical and data protection issues, and coordinates data harmonization and quality management of biobank operations. By this, biobanking technology and high quality biosamples of well-characterized cancer patients are made available for scientists and physicians of the consortium for the facilitation of scientific projects and clinical trials.
