Specimen Collection

The Clinical and Retrovirology Research Core provides a specimen collection and storage service for approved investigators who lack the funds or infrastructure needed to procure the clinical specimens necessary for their research.

If you are requesting help from the Repository staff in obtaining specimens for your research, please fill out a Request for UW HIV Information System (UWHIS) Data, Specimens and Referral Services and submit it along with your CV and documentation of IRB approval (including a copy of the IRB submission & consent) to the CRRC Core Manager via mail at University of Washington, Harborview Medical Center, Box 359930, 325 Ninth Avenue, Seattle, WA 94104-2499 or email at: cfarcrc at uw.edu or fax 206-744-6831. Your request will be reviewed by CRRC staff who will notify you of their ability to accommodate your request.
