We cannot advise as to the exact nature of the research, as a researcher’s needs change with time and there are continuing advances in technology allowing for a wider range of scientific research. However, researchers will only be able to access stored samples and clinical information after obtaining approval for their research projects from their institutional Human Research Ethics Committee and the APCB’s Tissue Access Committee. This is to ensure the samples are used ethically and is only provided to feasible research projects with scientific merit.
