Overview of Services

The central function of the DBSR is to:

  1. Provide oversight and infrastructure for the development and maintenance of cancer-related clinical databases and biobanks for collection of data and biospecimens
  2. Enable linkage to clinical data and tumor registry data through a secure portal
  3. To procure and maintain a repository of human biological samples, clinical data and epidemiologic data for distribution to investigators, while also protecting the confidentiality of individuals donating to the repository in the course of their medical care and/or research participation
  4. To support and facilitate cancer research in the context of IRB and HIPAA regulations by articulating and implementing criteria allowing the acquisition, storage and distribution for research use of such data and specimens with or without linkage to personal health identifiers
