Biobank Repository

As a patient at Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center, you have the option to participate in our Biobank Repository. This is a confidential and secure database of blood and tissue samples that helps medical and scientific researchers at UT Southwestern learn more about cancer and other diseases and how to treat them.

We invite you to view the following video and determine if you would like to participate in the Biobank Repository with either “full” or “limited” participation. You also have the option to opt out of participation altogether. The different options are explained in the video. You can also review answers to some frequently asked questions.


After watching the video, please familiarize yourself with the consent form, but you do not need to print it out. Our front desk personnel will discuss this with you at your next appointment.
