erse, these annotated samples offer the added information advantage of pathology, clinical and outcomes data.

Demanding SOPs help ensure high quality biospecimens. Rapid turn-around techniques ensure that both liquid and solid samples are verified and preserved within minutes of excision or draw.

Tyron (Ty) Hoover, MD, JD, serves as Executive Director of World BioBank(TM). Dr. Hoover brings special expertise to biobanking and Medico-legal issues including Informed Consent, Privacy, Bioethics. Upon completing a Pathology Residency at Baylor University Medical Center, Dr. Hoover's interest in the legal aspects of medicine led him to attain his JD, Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law, Dallas, TX. He practiced law in Florida before serving as the Medical Director of the Biospecimen Repository and Total Cancer Care at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute. He also co-directed the University of South Florida College of Medicine's Scholarly Concentration in Law & Medicine.

"By collecting and storing tissue and data from thousands of patients, World BioBank hopes to make a significant contribution to the fight against cancer and other diseases by providing greatly needed materials for scientists and doctors to study," remarked Dr. Hoover during World BioBank's opening. Samples will be available for both academic and private medical research.

Sample collection has begun at West Clinic, Memphis, TN. The multidisciplinary practice has over 110,000 patient encounters annually, with the potential of over 30,000 unique samples for the biorepository. "Memphis is a particularly important collection site as it offers a diverse demographic population. Other venues will be added as the year progresses," explained Dr. Schwartzberg.
