The Biorepository is responsible for collecting, storing, processing, and distribution of human tissue (fresh, frozen, FFPE) and body fluids (blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid)
Our mission is to provide high-quality annotated specimens with the potential to be linked (with appropriate IRB approval and patient consent) to clinical and pathological data.
Specimens are readily available for research and open to all investigators within the Mount Sinai Health System, as well as to outside investigators.
Samples can be collected from Mount Sinai Hospital and affiliates.
To request specimens from the Biorepository please contact Rachel Brody, MD PhD (Rachel.Brody@mountsinai.org ; 212-241-0678; ext. 40678)
