Research We Support
We provide biospecimens for leading organizations, including the US National Cancer Institute (NCI) and US Center for Disease Control (CDC), top pharma and biotech companies, as well as small and mid-sized start-ups.
We strongly support the research of autoimmune disorders by providing specimens from Diabetes type 1 and 2, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease and many other conditions to leading industry, academic and governmental organizations.
With the increased incidence of viral outbreaks we are witnessing today, including the Covid-19 pandemic, samples from patients affected by infectious diseases are precious and an indispensable tool for the protection of public health. We are committed to provide such specimens and to support vaccine and therapeutic development.
Neurological disorders affect human wellbeing and quality of life on a global scale. By providing specimens from donors affected by such pathologies, we support the work of public and private institutions with the goal of identifying better biomarkers, revealing diseases’ molecular mechanisms and finding better treatments.
Cancer Treatment Options and Management (CTOAM) is Canadian-based personalized cancer care and precision oncology service provider, specialized in finding the best possible treatment for cancer patients all around the world. CTOAM kindly agreed to share some of their patients' stories with us.
Two years after being diagnosed with stage IIA Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and two unsuccessful rounds of standard chemotherapy, today Kerryanne is doing well thanks to targeted therapy.
Damian is a stage III metastatic colon cancer patient, who is feeling much better thanks to a targeted treatment.
Anna is an ER/PR positive stage IV breast cancer patient on the way to recovery thanks to personalized treatment.
The biospecimens we have collected have fueled over 500 R&D projects covering multiple disease areas such as Oncology, Autoimmune Disorders, Infectious Diseases, and Neurology.
Ethics and Compliance
We adhere to the highest ethical and compliance standards, providing specimens that are collected in accordance with all applicable local and international laws.
