The mission of the UCSF Biospecimen Resources (BIOS) Program is to support the campus biobanking activities and provide high-quality biospecimens for collaborative translational, biomedical, and clinical research.


High-quality biospecimens are a cornerstone of the world-class biomedical research at UC San Francisco. The BIOS Program facilitates the development of precision medicine by increasing the number, quality, and value of biospecimens available for research at UCSF. It works across the campus to strengthen and coordinate UCSF’s biobanking activities and provides a suite of biospecimen-related services to UCSF investigators.
