I am part of a team that is developing a tissue and cell bank repository core for the melanoma disease management group at Memorial Sloan Kettering. We collect tissue, blood samples and cell lines along with personal data. The core constitutes a resource of information and biosamples for researchers. I use my knowledge in systems biology to ensure samples are annotated and data are curated adequately. We ensure the ethical collection, storage, annotation, and distribution of tissue and blood samples.
