The Tissue Procurement Core (TPC) Facility is jointly supported the Carver College of Medicine (CCOM) and the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center (HCCC). The goal of the TPC is to make well-characterized human biospecimens (tissue, blood, etc.) available for current research studies and to store frozen human biospecimens (usually tumor and normal tissues, blood, and derivatives) for future research studies.
