researchers, departments, centers and institutes at University of Michigan who are looking to create a biobank resource for their own use, as well as contribute to an enterprise-wide biorepository. We request broad consent for use and distribution of biological specimens and data from participants in CBR programs. Clinical teams engaging with the patients are provided with the Biorepository Information Sheet Template and the Biorepository Consent and Authorization template to include in their IRB applications. These documents were developed in collaboration with IRBMED, UMHS Compliance, and other experts across campus.
The CBR will provide consultations and assistance to research personnel as they write their IRB applications for inclusion in the CBR.
