Welcome to the Tayside Biorepository - Dundee

Tayside Biorepository is a secure tissue bank holding small samples of surplus tissue and other specimens generously donated by consenting patients who have undergone surgery or other more minor medical procedures during the course of their investigations and treatment. Such samples are vital for medical researchers seeking to improve the detection and treatment of many different diseases as well as advance our understanding of how and why they arise.
