Researchers can request human biological samples trough the Biological Sample Request Form.
To complete this form, the investigator must inform:
The Biobank Manager reviews the enquiry and then submits the application to the local Research Scientific Committee, which assesses the relevance and the feasibility of the project and validates the use of biological samples for the research project. For approved applications, all researchers involved in the project and their institution must sign a Material Transfer Agreement prior to the supply of samples.
Today, close to 264000 samples are stored in the freezers and liquid nitrogen. This priceless collection includes a diversity of biological sample nature (cell line, serum, plasma, tissue nucleic acid and so on) originating from oncology pathologies, whose most represented are thoracic, gynaecological, urological and haematological cancers.
Thanks to Paris Cancer Institute CARPEM Biobank, more than 30 research projects have started since the beginning of the CARPEM institute.
Having a large biological sample collection, Paris Cancer Institute CARPEM Biobank set up new strategies to ease the sample access to national and international researchers: development of a website (https://carpem.fr/en/activities/platforms/biobank/), increase of industrial and academic contracts and skilled personal recruitment.
The biobanks are a key tool to promote new challenge in European research. They represent a unique combination in biomedical research, in ethical requirements, multidisciplinary and international collaboration.
More than 30 research projects have started since the beginning of the CARPEM institute. Some of them are listed below.
