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 3 of the award has been spent increasing subject enrollment at all sites, tracking follow-up specimen and data collection, building on the informatics infrastructure to support sample searches and distribution, implementing a rigorous marketing campaign to increase awareness about LCBRN resources, performing histologic and molecular quality control, and serving LCBRN investigators.
