American Family Children's Hospital

The UW Carbone Cancer Center (UWCCC) Translational Science BioCore (TSB) supports world class biomedical research by facilitating cancer-related basic science and translational research through the integration of human biospecimen collection and storage with associated histological and molecular services. These services are provided through the partnership of the TSB BioBank and the TSB Translational Research Initiatives in Pathology (TRIP) laboratory.


The TSB BioBank provides high-quality human tissues, blood and other biospecimens that are prospectively collected, processed, stored and distributed in accordance with procedures that comply with the confidentiality, safety and all other regulatory standards set by UW-Madison and the National Cancer Institute's Best Practices for Biospecimen Resources.


The TSB Translational Research Initiatives in Pathology (TRIP) laboratory provides specialized histological and molecular/morphometric analyses and consultative services to support the individual research needs of investigators within the UWCCC. These services include the construction and distribution of tissue microarrays; quantitative morphometric analysis with AQUA, Vectra and Nuance instruments; multispectral fluorescence and bright field; immunohistochemistry; laser capture microdissection; and PCR and quantitative RT PCR analyses.
