The UKCRC Tissue Directory Live!

The UKCRC Tissue Directory is now live for medical researchers wanting to source human tissue for their studies. The Directory is intended to be a first port of call for researchers needing human samples; its functionality to search for both collections and capabilities. This means if it doesn’t return what you need you can search for platforms with the potential to source it.

Further details are available via the Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre website.
