In recent years, it has become clear to the research and advocacy community that biorepositories with high-quality biospecimens and data are needed to enable a new generation of biomedical research based on understanding the origins of disease at the molecular level. The spectrum of complexity surrounding human biospecimens is multifactorial and requires the involvement of a team of professionals working closely with the tissue donor to address all of these challenges. Many national and international efforts are underway to address this issue that is foundational to translational and personalized medicine.
