The Central Biorepository (CBR), a unit of the University of Michigan Medical School Office of Research, facilitates discovery and improves healthcare outcomes by providing high-quality, highly annotated biospecimens donated for basic, clinical, and translational research. We are an enterprise-wide resource, serving all members of the University of Michigan community.
Before you begin working with the CBR, please review our Pre-Onboarding Considerations for guidance on navigating the early steps of working with us.
Please note: Due to pandemic priorities and supply shortages/backorders, some services may be impacted at this time. Please see our biospecimen processing page for more details.
