For Investigators


The mission of the TGH-USF Health Precision Medicine Biorepository is to create a cost-effective, shared infrastructure to enhance translational research. Our facility procures high-quality biologic specimens along with coded clinical and demographic data across a broad ethnic, racial, and social demographic of patients. All specimens are systematically collected and processed so that their multi-functional potential for recovering high-quality bioanalytes is conserved. All specimens are stored in a database hub to connect researchers conducting a variety of scientific projects across multiple medical specialties.



These specimens are made available to investigators upon request:

  • Fresh, flash-frozen FFPE-preserved tissue specimens 
  • Blood and blood products, including RNA, genomic DNA, serum, plasma
  • Nasal swabs
  • Cultures
  • Stool
  • Urine
  • Adjacent normal tissue

Specimen Requests


All requests should be submitted using the request form, providing general background, the number and types of specimens required, and the dates by which tissue is needed.
