BC Children's Hospital Biobank

BC Children's Hospital BioBank collects samples from patients at both BC Children's Hospital and BC Women's Hospital for research purposes. We process and store the samples on site, and then send them to researchers for many different projects. These research projects must be approved by the BCCH Research Ethics Board. The research aims to improve the diagnosis and treatment outcomes for pediatric and women's patients. Participation is completely voluntary, and most samples are collected during scheduled clinical procedures, and only if left-over samples are available. There is also the option to donate extra blood and bone marrow.
