Using NWBioTrust: A Resource for Annotated Research Biospecimens

The NWBioTrust (NWBT) is a collaborative research resource dedicated to increasing the availability of high-quality, annotated human biospecimens that meet the detailed requirements of research and abide by all applicable human subjects regulations.

The NWBT provides investigators with a comprehensive biospecimen acquisition and distribution system that includes:

  • Prospectively-collected tissue and blood samples from surgeries or in conjunction with clinic procedures
  • Residual blood samples from clinical draws that would otherwise be discarded
  • De-identified formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues
  • The ability to query for research samples stored in participating repositories
