PHSA/BCCA/UBC- Biobanking and Biospecimen Research Services (BBRS) –This research infrastructure group encompasses an active biobank and biobanking support unit (BCCA Tumour Tissue Repository (TTR) at the BC Cancer Agency and UBC Office of Biobank Education and Research (OBER) at the Department of Pathology, University of British Columbia).
