Kelsey Dillehay McKillip, PhD - Director

The UC Biorepository (UCB) is a fee-for-service biospecimen procurement and storage facility that collects, stores, and dispenses high-quality human biospecimens in support of clinical, translational, and basic research. 

The UCB provides access to a large and growing collection of biospecimens, including malignant tissues with matched normal tissue, blood, and urine. The UCB also provides fit-for-purpose prospective biospecimen procurement services tailored to study specific requirements. 

Investigators who are interested in accessing banked biospecimen should complete a Sample Request Form.  For prospective collection services please contact Kelsey Dillehay McKillip.
