Ronald Burklund Eich Biorepository & Clinical Database
The LaBahn Pancreatic Cancer Program supports an integrated biobank with an extensive biorepository and robust clinical database. The Ronald Burklund Eich biorepository captures samples from a broad spectrum of diseases including: benign lesions, pre-malignant tumors, and malignant tumors. Serial longitudinal blood samples are collected starting at screening, into diagnosis, during/after treatment, and even post-mortem. The database centralizes storage of patient data and encompasses variables such as demographics, lab results, treatment specifics, outcomes and more. The biorepository is a key feature of the program that drives research initiatives from early detection biomarkers and drug optimization, to disease progression studies.
