Biopathology Center

The Biopathology Center (BPC) serves as a biorepository for projects sponsored by Nationwide Children’s Hospital investigators. Equipped with the expertise and robust infrastructure provided by the BPC’s work with many NCI-sponsored biorepository-based efforts, including the Children’s Oncology Group, the Gynecologic Oncology Group, SWOG (formerly the Southwest Oncology Group), and the Cooperative Human Tissue Network, the BPC Core is able to provide a variety of services including biospecimen processing, banking, distribution, and virtual microscopy.

Investigators are encouraged to include the BPC Core in the planning stages of their project, as staff can assist with creating a budget, reviewing feasibility, and lending their biobanking proficiency to ensure quality outcomes.

The BPC Core is equipped to handle a wide variety of specimen types and maintain the flexibility needed to accommodate the unique needs of each project.
