Abstract:

The mission statement of the Lung Cancer Biospecimen Resource Network LCBRN states that the LCBRN will collect, annotate, store, and distribute human lung cancer biospecimens in a manner that embraces the highest ethical standards for human subjects research, that conforms to the best practices of biorepository science, and that furthers basic, translational and clinical research in the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of this disease. Year 8 of the award has been spent collecting and completing follow-up data collection, conducting a thorough follow-up data audit on all LCBRN patients, serving biospecimens to LCBRN investigators and incorporating LCBRN data and specimens into the CHTN infrastructure.
