The Cardiovascular Biorepository (CVBio) at Massachusetts General Hospital allows for large-scale, state-of-the-art genetic and translational research by providing investigators with access to a rich collection of biosamples from across the Heart Center.
Supporting Innovative Research in Heart Disease
Our goal is to facilitate collaboration and community building within the center and to foster longitudinal relationships among physicians, investigators and patient donors.
Blood and tissue samples are stored in a Corrigan Minehan Heart Center repository at Mass General, and are linked to phenotypic and clinical data stored in a database. Researchers who have received approval from the Mass General Brigham Institutional Review Board (IRB) can obtain access to samples at little to no cost. We seek to provide a transparent submission system for project proposals whereby any member of the Corrigan Minehan Heart Center can submit a proposal to withdraw samples for use in scientific research. Our goal is to provide timely feedback on proposal submissions and reduce barriers to sample access.
