Newcastle Institute of Transplantation Tissue Biobank

Through the collection of transplantation tissue samples we support research in the field of transplantation.

The Institute of Transplantation provides clinical facilities for the care of patients undergoing the full range of solid organ transplantations. It also provides the opportunity to propel knowledge in the field of transplantation to the next level through research and development.

We collect samples such as:

  • explant material
  • urine
  • blood
  • biopsy material
  • bronchoalveolar lavage fluid
  • DNA
