Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute

Biobank of Biological Material

The biobank at the Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute was formally established in 2000 and was supported by institutional funding. In 2004 the local hospital information system was extended by biobank information management module that keeps records of the stored biological materials and associates them to the appropriate clinical and laboratory data. In 2010, the project, called "Bank of Clinical Specimens focused on cancer", was initiated and the MMCI becames a partner and a coordinator of Czech National Node of Biobanks (BBMRI.CZ) within the ongoing European research infrastructure for biobanking (BBMRI-ERIC).
