For Researchers


The BIOS Program is a comprehensive solution for UCSF investigators seeking assistance with biospecimens.  We provide tools and services that make acquiring, processing, annotating and managing biospecimens more efficient, less costly and less time consuming.

Our focus is on building a world-class, scalable biorespository infrastructure at UCSF, not on governing disease-group biobanks.  As such, our work is centered on increasing the number of high-quality biospecimens and developing biospecimen management resources that spur new research projects and collaborations.
