To the Moon and Back! Maintaining Integrity of Human Biospecimens

Scott Jewel, PhD, and Galen Hostetter, PhD, both of the Van Andel Research Institute, share their best practices for the management and use of biospecimens, specifically around the identification of variables on biospecimen quality and processing that can directly impact research results. Topics include:

  • How specimens are managed to maintain biospecimen integrity and quality
  • Isolation and analysis of tumor and non-tumor regions 
  • Alternative procedures used to enrich for target nucleic acid isolation
