Request a Sample

Wilmot members with NIH/NCI funding are given top priority for requests, followed by members with foundational/non-profit funding, commercial funding, and non-Wilmot investigators.

1. Project Feasibility


  • Draft and submit an RSRB study protocol by completing the WBB protocol template.
    • All samples and data collected by WBB are de-identified, and investigators never receive any identifiable information. Accodingly, study protocols for research on WBB samples generally receive an expeditious RSRB review resulting in a "not human research" determination.

3. Proposal

  • Complete and submit a WBB request proposal through the REDCap application portal.
  • All sample/data requests are reviewed by the instutional Biobank Utilization Committee.
    • Priority is assigned based on scientific merit, alignment with Wilmot/catchment area values, and sample priority.
