Tissue Banking Core Facility
The Tissue Banking Core Facility (TBCF) is designed to bank tissue and paired clinical data for Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center members. It has approval from the IRB and has an NIH certificate of confidentiality. The TBCF is overseen by a committee of four Sylvester members.
The TBCF employs a tumor bank manager who oversees daily activities, compliance with regulations and scheduling. The manager provides an interface with the site disease groups to coordinate data and tissue acquisition. The manager is assisted by two support staff including a pathology assistant who is responsible for tissue acquisition and frozen section analysis following resection and a tissue bank associate responsible for tissue inventory, data entry, and general maintenance of the facility.
