Sample Relocation

ATTENTION: RELOCATION OF BANKED BLOOD/DNA SAMPLES

Were you or your family member(s) assessed at the UBC Hospital Clinic for Alzheimer Disease and Related Disorders (UBCH-CARD) between 1993 and 2007?

If so, did you or your family member(s) provide a blood/DNA sample for UBCH-CARD research or storage?

If you answered yes to these questions, please be advised that these blood/DNA sample(s) are being moved from the Molecular Genetics Laboratory at the BC Children’s Hospital to the UBCH-CARD biobank at UBC Hospital.

As there is now additional capacity for storage at UBC Hospital, these samples are being relocated from BC Children’s Hospital and will continue to be safely stored.

For further information regarding these samples, please contact 604-822-2155.
