UC Irvine COVID-19 Research Biobank

The UCI School of Medicine Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Center for Clinical Research, and Institute for Clinical and Translational Science are developing a comprehensive COVID-19 research biobank available for COVID-19 related research projects. Initial collections include whole blood, plasma, and serum from participants being tested for COVID-19 and remnant nasal swab samples. Virus status will be known. Requests will be evaluated by an independent biobank committee and prioritized based on scientific merit, feasibility and novelty. UCI faculty and affiliates are eligible to apply for samples. Outside projects will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. For more information or to download the form to request samples from the COVID-19 Research Biobank, please visit the COVID Biobank Website.
