Welcome to the UI Biorepository. It is co-managed by the UIC Department of Pathology and the Research Resources Center.

The biorepository acquires, stores, catalogues, and provides tissue and other biological samples for investigators at the University of Illinois. It was established in 2012 as a resource in the UI Hospital and Health Sciences System in collaboration with the RRC to augment clinical and translational research at UIC and improve the treatment and health of individuals from Chicago, Illinois, and beyond.

We gratefully acknowledge ongoing support from the UIC Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, the Cancer Center, and the UIC Center for Clinical and Translational Science from the National Institutes of Health through grant number UL1TR000050.
