COVID-19 biospecimens are available through the Tissue Procurement Core (TPC). Please contact Brian Goetz (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a cost estimate for biospecimen distribution. An IRB approval letter may need to be submitted to the TPC. The TPC will create a new project within Open Specimen, and samples will be distributed. To request clinical data from samples collected under WU350, after IRB approval is received, investigators may contact Drs. Jane O’Halloran and Chuck Goss for access to this data. To request clinical data from WU353 (donor plasma), after IRB approval is received, investigators may contact Drs. Jane O’Halloran, Rachel Presti, or Chuck Goss for access to this data.
