Description

The mission of the Stanford Center for Clinical Research (SCCR) includes offering educational resources, training, and support for investigators and research staff.  We have invited SCCR Clinical Research Manager Sumana Shashidhar, M.Sc, MS, to provide you with an overview of commonly sampled biospecimens in clinical research studies, why they are collected and what downstream information they provide.

At the conclusion of this class, you will be able to:

  • Understand why biospecimens are sampled
  • Examine types of biospecimens and ways to sample them
  • Describe general overview of a study kit
  • Identify the guide to the color code of blood collection tubes
  • Explain how most commonly sampled biospecimens are processed and why
  • Recognize collection/storage methods and how they affect downstream data

Attendance is open to all research staff
