The Sol Goldman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center

Johns Hopkins Tissue Resource

A variety of tissues are available to scientific collaborators through the Gastrointestinal (GI) Cancer Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) Grant. This is a National Cancer Institutes grant to Johns Hopkins University. These tissues include normal tissues, precancers and invasive cancers from the pancreas and colon. Samples are available include:

  • fresh-frozen tissue,
  • xenografted tissue,
  • tissue microarrays, and
  • formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue

The sharing of tissues is governed by appropriate HIPPA (health information portability and privacy) regulations and Institutional Review Board (IRB) approvals. In addition, the scientific merit of the collaborative use of these materials will be evaluated by an institutional GI SPORE scientific review group.

For more information on this shared resource, please contact Dr. Ralph Hruban.
