The Biobank structure
The PROCURE Biobank is being carefully guided by a team of researchers, pathologists, scientists, nurses and research assistants from the four major Quebec University Hospitals Centers. This team, in conjunction with the Head of Operations, ensures a high degree of rigor both in the follow-up of 2,000 patients per year and in the management of biospecimen collection as well as a clinical-pathological data and socio-demographic data.
An allocation committee
An Allocation Committee, comprised of clinical experts, researchers, national and international administrators and patients, is in place to ensure the evaluation, prioritization and final decision on the acceptance of applications for biospecimens and data to carry out promising, innovative and short-term impact research projects for patients. This committee is currently recruiting members.
