The biobank of clinical samples is an existing large infrastructure founded and maintained
by the Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute (MMCI) and functionally it is bound to the OP VaVpI
RECAMO project. The biobank at MMCI was certified by the management board of the BBMRI
as an associated entity and it will become coordinator of Czech part of the pan-European
research infrastructure BBMRI (Biobanking and biomolecular resources research infrastructure)
under BBMRI_CZ name. The goal of BBMRI_CZ is to create a network of biobanks in the
Czech Republic under supervision of MMCI, which will store patients biological samples
in a long-term way in standardized and approved conditions. An important part of this project
is development of information system which will allow interoperability of the BBMRI_CZ
with other European biobanks. MMCI not only develops and maintains a biobank of cancer
diseases samples, it also has unique set of technologies and expertise to implement
translational research in molecular biology, and its clinical applications including clinical
trials. There is know-how to conduct translational research in areas of cell biology, molecular
oncology and applied molecular oncology. In the biobanking area, the MMCI biobank will allow
access to clinical sample and possibly also their analyses in such a way to the the
archived material will support further development of prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
