A CRB is a technical platform that manages the conservation of human biological samples to advance scientific and medical research. The one in Bordeaux is located in the Tondu building of the Pellegrin hospital group.
The main purpose of the multi-thematic CRB is to provide support to researchers wishing to establish collections of human biological samples in the context of research projects (clinical research, basic research, translational research, biotechnological research, etc.).
The tumor bank of Bordeaux University Hospital was created in 2003 thanks to DHOS / INCa funding. She is attached to the Department of Tumor Biology of the Bordeaux University Hospital (Pr JP Merlio).
It concerns the sampling of the Bordeaux University Hospital and the Aquitaine Region within the framework of the regional joint health tumor bank with the Bergonié Institute.
About 75% of solid “sanitary” freezings are stored in this structure. The premises and equipment of the tumor-tumor biology department are shared with the cell hematology department (Pr FX Mahon) to form the CHU site of the INCa platform for the molecular genetics of cancers.
In addition to conducting rapid health analysis, this allows for optimal management, technical qualification of samples, derivation of products (sections, nucleic acids, proteins), inclusion in clinical research protocols and sample distribution. characterized phenotypically and genetically.
The tumor biology department is located on the site of the CHU Haut-Lévêque.
