To provide the maximum amount and quality of human tissue for research at Yale University without impacting diagnostic quality, accuracy and safety in anatomic pathology.
Human tissue, collected by physicians for diagnostic purposes, is an extremely valuable resource for translational research. However, this resource is limited in amount and constricted in scope of use, because human tissue initially belongs to the patient from whom it was taken, and, once collected, is an asset of the institution. Its diagnostic usage supersedes all other uses. We now have a proposed set of policies and standard operating procedures that will provide for optimal management of pathology resources including fresh, frozen, and fixed tissue, including tissue from the Yale Pathology Departmental Archives.
