Clinical Annotation

The efficient integration of clinical data with scientific results has become critical in determining population of patients that may best benefit from a new drug or therapy. Extensive and consistent annotations of the specimens are crucial to many research studies.

We are building and maintaining a centralized research database according to HIPPA specifications and Penn IRB standards. All samples collected have clinical annotation including demographic patient profiles, pathological & clinical notations, treatment history, and detail disease information.
