Abstract

For the past 11 years, fresh frozen and paraffin embedded human normal and tumor tissues have been banked in a collaborative effort between various clinical departments including surgery, pathology and clinical oncology in the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center in order to study the translational relationship between genes and proteins which are altered in various types of neoplasms and compared to translational expression in normal human tissues.This review is a compilation of the work between several departments within the School of Medicine, from IRB protocol approval, patient informed consent document, and HIPAA consent sign off process, frozen tissue collection, both frozen and fixed tissue sample processing, storage of the tissue, and database tracking of the specimens as they are sent to the researchers. This review highlights the banking processes as well as the quality control of the tissues and the lessons learned in the tissue bank process over the past 11 years as it relates to using high quality biospecimens for translational genomic research. High quality biospecimens is the key for best practices in all translational genomic and proteomic research. The success of genomic research and its application in both the clinical and basic research for translational medicine and drug discovery is strongly dependent on the best practices for collection, handling, and storage of human tissue samples for research' (Farkas, Kaul et al. 1996), (Naber 1996)( Holland et al).
