UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre

Connecting researchers with samples and data

Human tissue samples are collected by various researchers and biobanks across the UK, yet, the ability for researchers to undertake the necessary research into human conditions is still hampered by the inability to find suitable samples. The Tissue Directory aims to change that. Its the UK’s only register of sample collections that covers multiple diseases and allows searching based on age, gender, disease classification, sample type and available datasets.

We collaborate with the UK’s Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre to make consented human tissue samples easier to find.
